Old Fisherman

The Old Fisherman is a painting created in 1902, by Hungarian artist Tivadar Kosztka Csontvary.

If you place a mirror directly in the middle of the painting and facing left, it will show the old man with his hands peacefully clasped and a calm sea behind him.

However, if you face the mirror to the right, all of a sudden the old fisherman becomes the devil himself with a wild, raging sea behind him and a dark, forboding sky above.

    Oh those are so cool! I may just be overthinking things(as usual _-_ ) but I think that since the left hand represents the hand of God, or Angels, when you turn the mirror to the left it is supposed to represent clarity, whereas the right is opposite.
