The neighbouring picture displays a variation of the well-known “Kanizsa’s Triangle”: The blue “Pack-people” define by their cutout wedges an apparent triangle, which seems to hover above the background. If you place the mouse over it, the apparent triangle is no longer aligned with the background texture, and the effect all but vanishes.
