In this painting “Don Quixote” by Octavio Ocampo we see an ambiguous image with two or more distinct images in it. Surrealist painters created images that decoded our perception of reality, and our unconscious thoughts. We can either view the painting at first glance seeing the huge portrait of Don Quixote, or we can see the two horses behind the two soldiers sitting first. Our perception of the painting depends where our focus draws too first. There are hidden images in this painting such as the skull on the ground, and the face in the rainbow skyline, the windmill with the face behind it, and the soldier whose shield is in the image of a face. Perception is used often when viewing art using our sense of understanding and consciousness.
