What do you see?

What do you see?

Created by Erhard Schon in 1538

Just to inform you : people have always been perverts. But back in the days, they had to cover it up a little. When you look at this picture from 1538, you notice a man and a woman to the left, and a somewhat strange landscape to the right. When you held the original and looked at it from the right, in a very sharp angle, you saw the couple doing a little more than kissing.

The Ambassadors

The Ambassadors

Created by Hans Holbein in 1533

This is a famous painting with a lot of hidden symbolism and meanings. The most eye-catching and intriguing is the warped skull in the front of the painting (the gray stripe). A lot has been written about the meaning of this skull, it is said to be a symbol of the mortality of man. You would have to look at it from a very sharp angle to see the skull.

The Mysterious Island

Created by Istvan Orosz in 1983

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Created in 2005

This very original coaster was made for Guinness to revive their tagline. When the coaster is placed, the text on it is unreadable. When the glass is placed on it - still nothing. But when the beer is poured in the glass, you can read the text perfectly in the reflection on the glass (those who wait ...). To really understand the tagline, look for it on Youtube.
