Giving Manbun Another Meaning
At first, we had no idea what was wrong with this picture. Well, except for the sand in her hair, but other than that, there doesn’t appear to be anything that would force us to look twice. Oh, wait a minute. Are those people in the background drowning? Someone, call the lifeguard! And why is this woman with the bun so calm about the situation?
Un momento, that’s not a bun at all! That’s a man standing in the exact place her bun would be if she had one. We can’t tell whether the silver thing between the man’s neck and her hair is sand or his necklace, but that key piece is what pulls the optical illusion off.
