Can you see it?

The above picture, ostensibly displaying a large cluster of red roses, is actually a simple example of a computer-generated 3D illusion, more appropriately called a stereogram.

A beautiful 3D object, which signifies the meaning of the foregoing phrase, a favourite catchphrase of Dilip Mukerjea, is embedded by computer manipulation within the seemingly random display.

It takes both of your eye balls to tango in order to see it. That's to say, your two brain hemispheres got to work together in perfect harmony.

If you see it, the 3D object remains floating in space, right in front of your eyes!

Yes, I know. The feeling is exhilarating & exuberating... just like falling in love!
