For what it's worth.....

The picture is an animated gif file.

http://134.84.113.36/images/dancer.gif

It consists of 34 frames or stills that are displayed for .003 seconds per frame, looping continuously. I checked the code and the loop does not change directions. The loop starts at frame 1, ends at frame 34, and starts over.



For me when I start with frame 1, the dancer is spinning clockwise. But even as I advance it 1 frame at a time, if I lose my "is that her front or back reference", she will change directions.

Look at frames 7 & 24. Which leg is extended...right or left?



Your answer will correlate to which direction she is turning. If I make the mental switch at those points, I can see her spinning back & forth 180 degrees only.

I believe this is one of those optical illusions or puzzles that we've all seen before (only moving).

Do you see a woman or a sax player?



It really comes down to your point of reference...what are you concentrating on?

Whatever the answer is, it was fun.

My hindbrain was checking out the rack.

My frontal lobes were wondering why the Telegraph needed to display a naked woman to make a point...

There's something wrong with your eyes. It's only anticlockwise. (after I accepted the cookie)
Makes me the only 100% left brainer on this board

I've tried all the tricks on this thread and I still only see clockwise - it's making me mad. Yet I think the left-brain description describes me far better than the right brain...

It can be seen turning clockwise, and anti-clockwise. Maybe it's easier to download picture, and open it in IE (it turns slower then).

Other "trick" is to click and drag the picture holding left mouse button (works when opening the page in Firefox) and rotation stops, then You have to visualize the girl standing on right foot, an force you to expect she will turn anti-clockwise, release the left mouse button, and she will be turning anti-clockwise.
