Holiday Themed Illusions

I found these images on one of my frequent searches. Here's some great skull illusions that are only evident if you look at the image from far away, or if it's compressed into a smaller size. To make it easy, I've compressed them. I think they're pretty cool!

Day of the Dead

Wotherspoon - Gossip

Amour de Pierrot

Gilbert - Vanity

This image was later translated into a photograph that was used for the Def Leppard album cover:
Def Leppard - Retro Active

Philippe Halsman - Salvador Dali In Voluptate Mors

Interesting enough, the Dali photo above was used in the movie poster for Silence of the Lambs.
The photo itself was inspired by surrealist Dali’s gouache Female Bodies as a Skull painting. Dali later translated the same idea into his own live sculptures.
