Image of The Seven Boys

Find Seven Boys

This print, contained in a large Victorian scrap book, is in fact a puzzle picture. By turning the print round and viewing it from different points, it will be found that though at first sight there appear to be but three boys in this group, there are really seven distinct bodies.

A similar print appears in The Graphic of 1885 with the title "The Seven Boys - an allegory of the Pleiades from an old painting by Francis Floris".
