Woman with Halloween Skull Reflection In Mirror by 


Optical illusions (sometimes called also visual illusions) are cool images perceived in a manner that differs from objective reality. What the human eye sees is interpreted by the brain in a way that contradicts physical measurement of the source image.

    Isn’t that off of the Def Leppard album cover, Retro Active? I always thought that was a creative way to view a skull.

  • Def Leppard have obviously done a cover of the original artwork as well. The album cover can be seen here The photography copyright is believed to belong to Bludgeon Riffola.
    My painting was reproduced as homage to the original artist.

  • A higher resolution of Def Leppard’s photographic recreation of this artwork can be seen here

  • This is not a copy of the Def Leppard photographic image.
    Even Def (bloody) Leppard acknowledge that the album cover is by Nels Israelson and Hugh Syme, shows a lady sitting at a dressing table, looking in a mirror. However, if you hold the cover at arm’s length or look at it from a distance, it takes the form of a skull (a type of vanitas art), the woman’s head forming the left eye socket, and her reflected head in the mirror forming the right eye socket. The mirror itself forms the shape of the skull and the accessories on the dressing table form the nose, nostrils and teeth. It was inspired by Charles Allan Gilbert’s most famous work, All Is Vanity (1892).

    Love this picture – I have it tattooed on my left arm. I know it from The Damned single ‘Stretcher Case Baby’ from 1977.
    I got the tattoo artist to copy from Charles A Gilbert’s original.. Here is the record cover
