Explanation

Since we live in a 3D world, our mind tries to convert a 2D object into a 3D one. In this optical illusion, we try to make sense of these 2D objects. The shading used is completely incongruous. The eyes lock onto a part of the illustration that looks appropriately shaded but then find it disjointed with shading in other nearby areas. The eyes keep jumping around the drawing trying to map out a 3-D solution that would make the shading illustration make sense, but it never seems to work.
