Wordless Wednesday: George Washington Looks Both Ways

This concave sculpture of President George Washington at the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center at Mt. Vernon creates the illusion that Mr. Washington's gaze is following you across the lobby of the center. My daughter and I stood at opposite sides of this sculpture and photographed him at the same time. In both images, he is looking right at us. Studio EIS knows how to make the magic.

  5. How eerie. The Lincoln Center in Lincoln, IL has some amazing art similar to this but it is Abe Lincoln of course.

    I don't know, he looks a little bit drunk to me. Maybe breaking the fabric of space-time has that effect. :)

  17. That's so cool. You wonder how they do that?
    Today I was wondering if they don't do these holograms in the sky and make people think they are UFO's.
