ln Gestalt psychology the figure ground perception is a term used to refer to our tendency to distinguish between the background and the object in our visual field .the human perceptual capacity seperates the elements into either figure or ground elements.our perception of visual stimulus may change if the figure ground relationship isnt presented in a specific way .

what you see in these visuals may change according to how you differentiate the items you organize in your visual perception


decide which parts of these images seem to be the figure and the ground of the composition

I saw the glass or vase before I saw the faces.

I see a someone hugging what appears to be large black ant.

View attachment 67151311

I saw the woman's face first.

Columns or chess pieces. I actually had to look at this one a little longer to see what else it could be.

No idea. I've never been able to make this one make sense to me.

I see a woman who appears to have her face turned away (and a large feather or something in her hair) so I can't tell if she's young or old.

If I'm gay for not seeing two women does that mean you're gay because you can? ;)

I see the faces and the goblet simultaneously.

this one's odd. I either see a black "ghost" figure or a black figure kissing a white figure. I don't really see a single white figure doing anything.

I see the saxophone player and the face simultaneously, sort of like the first picture.

I see the chess pieces (?) first, but after a moment I saw the two guys facing each other.

I see the younger woman with her head turned first, the old crone with the massive nose next. Unlike the first and the third pictures, I don't see them simultaneously. It's one or the other, never both at the same time.


Does seeing some of the figures simultaneously mean that I'm an insane serial killer?

Me too. I can easily see both (except for that last pic) but for each of them I saw one thing first.

I always see "both" at the same time...or so close that it is realy hard to tell which one I actually saw "first"
