An undisputed classic of the optical illusion world, this picture, entitled ‘My Wife and My Mother-in-Law’ was created by a cartoonist named William Ely Hill and published in Puck magazine back in 1915. Now, a century later, it continues to bamboozle observers. The image has been cleverly drawn to feature two different female figures; one of them is young and elegant, while the other appears old and crone-like. A study has shown that the woman you see first depends on your age. Older people tend to see the older lady, while younger observers spot the young woman first.
