In this black-and-white grid, can you identify the recognizable face?
A celebrity’s face is tucked away amid the dots that make up the perplexing optical illusion, albeit it is tough to notice.
You may use a few techniques, such as standing at an angle or shaking the device it is shown on, to assist you view the hidden star.
Staring at the grid while stepping away from your phone or computer seems to be the most effective.
The iconic face should become more visible as you go further away.
Here’s a hint if you’re still baffled: One of the greatest pop performers of all time, according to many, was this late musician.
Michael Jackson is the obvious answer. Now that you are aware of the answer, try returning to the image: He need to show up sooner.
It’s a fresh spin on the well-known Magic Eye illusions, which masked 3D images with swirls of dots or lines.
The visual riddle is the consequence of how our brains absorb information, according to Dr. Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and expert on human perception at Goldsmiths University in London, who was speaking to The Sun.
He compared it to a similar panda-obscuring monochromatic grid illusion.

According to Dr. Kuhn, “our eyes encode enormous volumes of jumbled sensory information, and our brain employs cunning strategies to disambiguate this information in an effort to make sense of what it is we are looking at.”
What you see is a combination of extensive brain computation and educated guessing.
“For instance, if you gaze at a group of trees, you could think they’re a forest or a tree.
Depending on the part of the scene you are concentrating on, you will see different things.
In the “panda illusion,” information is stored at many sizes, and depending on whatever scale you concentrate on (such as the trees or the forest), you will either see a lot of lines or the larger image—the panda.
Moving farther away from the image makes the concealed character more obvious, according to Professor Fiona Macpherson of the University of Glasgow’s Illusion Index.
The panda picture has a specific spatial frequency when it is a specific distance away from you, she told The Sun.
