Three Dragons

This dragon optical illusion has been one of the most visited items on the Grand Illusions web site, and millions of people have downloaded the PDF and made their dragons.

Up until now, we have only offered a blue dragon. Now we offer you a choice - you can have your dragon in blue, red or - very traditional - green.

You need to right click on the links below, and select 'Save Target As...' in order to download the PDF to your computer.

You can download the GREEN DRAGON, download the RED DRAGON or download the BLUE DRAGON.

These are PDF files. Right click on the link to download the dragon of your choice. each one is about 500k download. Once you have printed the dragon out (a colour printer is best since this is a colour image) then you can cut out the dragon, fold and stick it, and you will be able to see this fantastic illusion yourself. When you print the page out, you will see that the instructions for folding the dragon are included. Please follow these instructions exactly. The key thing to remember is that the dragon's head needs to be folded so that it is concave when you look at it.

How does it work? This is an example of the Hollow Face Illusion, and if you have a look at the original Dragon Illusion page, there is a bit more information.

We also have a version of the Hollow Face illusion in the Grand Illusions Toy Shop, which shows Einstein's Face.

The dragon is reproduced here with the permission of the American company Thinkfun, formerly Binary Arts.
