You’re deeply mistaken if you see only one man in the picture. There are at least four of them here.

As we’ve noted before, the theme of visual puzzles has been incorporated into artistic styles for a long time. As far back as the 17th and 18th centuries, artists embedded various riddles into their paintings, thus attracting more viewers to their works. Puzzles from that period were greatly appreciated by ordinary people and were published in various newspapers and magazines.

In our country, the situation was similar to that of Western European countries and the USA. We also had newspapers and magazines with illustrations of jokes, funny situations, riddles, and puzzles. The well-known 19th-century newspaper “Odessa Herald” is a prime example.

What’s most interesting is that a large portion of such artworks became public domain after a certain period of time, meaning anyone could use such images for any purpose.

Today, let’s look at a puzzle from 1866, created by Frank Bellew, who came up with a very original title for it: “The Art of Amusement.” Indeed, this picture falls into the category of entertainment puzzles.

At first glance, the picture depicts a man with a pipe. However, upon closer inspection, you can find at least four more people in it.

So, how many total individuals (faces) did Frank Bellew, the creator, depict in his picture?
