Old Woman and Young Lady Illusion, the original

The picture originates from 1888 in Germany & was first seen public ally on a postcard for the “Anchor Buggy Co” with a caption that reads “You see my wife, but where is my mother in Law?”

The illusion plays on what is called Perceptual Ambiguity, looking at certain regions of the image your mind will play towards one of the enclosed images. For example, staring at the necklace will tilt you more towards seeing the old women whereas staring at the nose will lean you towards the young woman.
