This optical illusion makes a still image appear as if it is rotating

I do not know about anyone else, but I, for one, enjoy optical illusions. Why? I do not really know. Maybe because they perplex my mind. Maybe because I like feeling smart after I figure them out. Maybe because I am just weird. Who knows. In any case, if you are like me and you enjoy optical illusions, you will like the following one too. Check it out:

    Is that really you Justin ?
    Or is it just another illusion ?
    . . .
    If it is you Justin, I have a gauge as to how much I would like to go out with a woman.
    If she is very desirable, I offer the lives of my distant relatives, in exchange for being partnered with that woman.
    If you could set me up with your ex girlfriend (Selena), I would offer up my whole family.

    If I close my eyes, then open them, it rotates slightly in the direction described by Susann and Peter.

    But it only rotates a wee bit then stops, until I close and reopen my eyes again.

    Oh my! Don’t believe what you read, don’t believe what you hear, smell, touch or even see!! :(
    Still believe what I decided to do so :)

    How nice, there’s at least a consoling truth in mathematics…

    P.S.: to Unicorn02: from above it turns seemingly in clockwise orientation for me (if seen from above); I guess it has to do with shadows being more or less intense.

    Ooph, my eyes, my eyes! Unicorn02, for me the whole thing is rotating slowly clockwise on a horizontal plane (right to left in the forefront, yes). Thx for the link, negelfar. I love this sort of thing, too.
