3D Mona Lisa

I learned today, in this article and some other related research, that a second Mona Lisa painting is suspected of being another side of a 3D experience. If anyone could pull this off, it would be Leonardo DaVinci. I focused my eyes between these two pictures and was able to see a 3D image. See if you can do it.

Study: The researchers used a red-cyan anaglyph to combine the two paintings of the Mona Lisa (pictured)
Here are the faces. See if you can trick your eyes again…

Hint: If you can’t warp the picture to 3d with your eyes, make the picture smaller until you can.
