    The one on the left is angry. No, wait … the one on the right.

    Pretty cool…

    It’s kind of interesting that the calmer the face appears, the more like a woman it also appears, and the angrier it looks, the more like a man.

    I don’t know how it works but it sure is a strange illusion.

    I can tell that it’s the shadows that you see from a distance and the actual features you see from close up. Look at the shading close up and you’ll see what I mean.
