The three optical illusions below have been created by the reclusive Russian illustrator Petechev Monx.
Mr Monx – who has not been seen in public in the last 20 years – recently sent a batch of illusions to his great friend and publisher Dame Susan Sasun.
Dame Sasun released the following statement yesterday:
“Since the death of his writing partner – a Coy Carp going by the name of Michelev Chencanova – in July 1991, Petechev has not published any new illusions and I was over the moon to receive a bundle of his work in the post last Tuesday. Petechev also included a note with the illusions, that stated: “I will be returning to public life, but I am physically changed, and not in a good way.”
Please enjoy the magic of the illusions, which will be published in The New Scientist magazines August 2011 edition.
