THIS puzzling photo of columns has a strange double meaning behind them if you look closely.
The column can be found at the Phaeno Science Center in Wolfsburg, Germany. They were originally created by David Barker in 1989.

They were created for the Exploratorium, the San Francisco museum of science, art and human perception. In their original location on a sidewall, they received a lot of traffic.
Barker said of the columns: “I observed that people – mostly kids – would catch a glimpse of the shadowy angel figure from the corner of their eye. As they turned, they would see the illusion.”
At first glance, the columns look as if they could be pieces for a giant chessboard.
However, if you look at the negative space between them, you might catch the alternate meaning. These particular columns are unique due to the space in between resembling human figures.
At the tops of the columns, you might catch what looks to be the silhouette of the side of a person’s face. If you keep looking down the columns, you might also see the shape of the “person’s” body as well.
“Simple but effective,” wrote someone, describing the columns.
Another person said: “I don’t see angels, I see geishas.”
If you’re interested in illusions, this one could reveal awkward personality traits about yourself.
Another could reveal if you are more so strong-willed or laid back.
And this one could show what kind of brain you have.
