      This optical illusion is a work by Japanese artist Makoto Aida titled AZEMICHI (a path between rice fields). Business Week says that this acrylic painting is a parody of the best-known work of Kaii Higashiyama, a major figure in Japanese modern painting. Makoto Aida was at a loss what to do after graduating from a prestigious art college in 1991 and took nearly a year to paint this picture.

      “A Path Between Rice Fields” is a photorealistic painting by Japanese contemporary artist Makoto Aida which shows a young Japanese schoolgirl standing between two rice fields. The painting creates an optical illusion with the little girl’s parted hair line as it merges with the divide between the rice fields.

    "It's the painting of a dutiful daughter. You want to please. You are always aware of what the person looking at this picture will think of it. Because of that you've missed something important. Does that make sense?" She thought, then nodded. "You win." Julien grunted. "Have another go, then. I shall come back and come back until you figure it out." "And you'll know?" "You'll know. I will merely get the benefit of it.” ― Iain Pears, The Dream of Scipio
