This optical illusion seems to keep shifting and moving. Can you explain why?


Scroll down for the explanation.


Most people will see this optical illusion move and shift if they look at it for a short while.


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