What do You See?? You Might want to Check Again...



What do you see in this painting?? The face and shoulders of Don Quixote??... or Don Quixote on his horse with Sancho Panza and a Windmill on the background??

This is a banner in the State Central Library is a replica of  the “The Visions of the Quixote”,   made by the Mexican painter Octavio Ocampo (follow the link to check his gallery).

His paintings show at least 2 different interpretations at plain sight, always making the observer think while contemplating them.
