These works by artist Don Jacot are not officially considered optical illusions, but they are illusions - of a fantastical 1950s childhood filled with Buck Rogers Atomic Pistols, X-99 space saucers and G-Men and Yellow Taxis stuck in traffic jams.

All the tin toys are actually "six foot paintings showing toys blown up several times their actual size."
