This is really cool and fun to make... download, print it out and try it! (You may have to adjust the dpi to make it fit on an 8 x 10 sheet)

This little dragon appears to be looking at you. But if you rotate the base this way or that the dragon's head appears to turn the other way...

Or if you stand the dragon on a shelf and walk about, the dragon's head follows you around the room. And yet it is simply a sheet of paper, cut and folded in a certain way. How does it work?

That's pretty cool! I was able to slack off for a few minutes at work and construct the dragon.

I didn't see it for a minute, but then was able to see it the illusion way, and it's uncanny!

I showed it to someone else in the office. She didn't get it for a minute either, but she jumped in surprise when she was able to see it. :-)
