If You Can Find The Woman Hiding In This Photo, You’re Considered To Have An Above Average IQ

Ever since we were kids flipping through Where’s Waldo? and I Spy books one thing is obvious: Humans clearly enjoy puzzles, games, challenges, and optical illusions. Now challenges like these are all over the internet for you to attempt. Some claim that if you can find the woman in this painting in under five seconds you have above average IQ. Can you find her?

Though we’re not quite sure if there is any science to back this up, apparently if you can find the woman in the painting below you are of above-average IQ. (1) If you did, good for you! If you are still confused, perhaps we can help you out a little more.


Jörg Düsterwald Body Painting

German artist Jörg Düsterwald is known for his incredible body art. He has been using the human body as his canvas for over 20 years, causing his subjects to blend into whatever background or scene he puts them in. (1) He originally posted the photo of an old gated stone fence surrounded by trees and fallen leaves. Düsterwald then challenged his follower to find the woman hidden in the photo. Of course, the woman isn’t hiding at all, she’s sitting right in the foreground of the picture. Masterfully painted to blend in with the tree and the ground foliage, you barely notice that she is there. (1) You can see similar photos from his Nature Art series.


Still Haven’t Found Her? Here she is!
