Summary[edit]

Description
English: The Spinning Dancer is a kinetic, bistable optical illusion resembling a pirouetting female dancer. Some observers initially see the figure as spinning clockwise and some anticlockwise. Additionally, some may see the figure suddenly spin in the opposite direction. The illusion derives from an inherent ambiguity from the lack of visual cues for depth. There are other optical illusions that originate from the same or similar kind of visual ambiguity, such as the Necker cube.
Français: La danseuse en rotation, illusion d'optique créée par le web designer Nobuyuki Kayahara. Certains observateurs voient la figure tourner dans le sens horaire et d'autres dans le sens anti-horaire.
