In the early 20th century, optical illusions skull postcards were very popular in Europe.

“Intended to cause the viewer to reflect on the inevitability of mortality and the consequent foolishness of all human ambition,”Vanitas and Memento Mori are the two names for these paintings.

Metamorphic skulls have always been one of the most popular optical illusions. Since the 19th century, artists and designers have used this type of image on postcards, comics ads and covers. Skull illusions are also used in a wide range of graphic works. There are many examples of satirical poster, pulp magazine covers and, more recently, CD covers or film posters that feature these illusions. Many modern artists have used these illusions as well.
