Optical Ilusion
The Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Khafre


The Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Khafre

Because of an optical illusion created by the different inclination of the faces of the two pyramids and by the different ground level, one gets the impression that the Pyramid of Khafre (built on a slightly elevated position) is the largest.

However the Pyramid of Khufu is actually larger than any other.
