The first one is a design for the word “Internet” that is symmetric even when rotated by 180 degrees. Click the button above and see for yourself.
The second one is a design for the word “Angel” which is symmetric left-to-right i.e. the design will look the same when reflected in a mirror on the wall (something Hofstadter calls, quite naturally a “wall reflection”).
The third and final design is for the word “Praise” which when reflected horizontally (a “lake reflection”) becomes the word “Blame.”
Hope you like these three ambigrams and the ability to manipulate them to enjoy the beauty in the designs. Lots more to come…
