Social media is going crazy once again by another online illusion.
Swiss photographer Tiziana Vergari posted this one to Instagram last week and the question remains, how many?
There is definitely a mirror somewhere, the question is where?
Over 15,000 people have liked the photo, which has over 1000 comments since it was posted on social media.
I think the answer is simple. Look at the wall, not the girls.
But that would be too easy, yes?
The Blaze reports some of the responses:
Are there four girls? Three? Two? Where exactly is the mirror located? Is there just one mirror, or are there two or three? The Internet found no consensus.
“It’s obviously 2,” wrote one person.
“There are 4 girls, the first one closest to the camera, the 2nd one has her head turned looking at the 3rd whose head isn’t on the same plane as the 2nd and the 4th girl is looking in the mirror. The 4th girls’ point of view in her eyes is different, she’s looking at the camera whereas the first one is looking up screen past the camera,” wrote another.
“1st girl has collar lining (Or whatever it’s called) on both sides, 4th girl has it only on 1 side,” another reasoned.
A series of illusion puzzles have gone viral across social media. There was the Lone Panda amidst a legion of snowmen and the infamous Blue Dress photo.
