Mysterious Monday - Varieties of Perception

Mystery of the day... What is this a picture of ?

Cute, cuddly kitten or
Napoleon's hat.

Clint Eastwood's poncho from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly or
Inspector Clouseau's trench coat.

Misplaced hubcap from an old jaguar or
Prairie schooner overpacked with beaver pelts.

Ronaldo's retired soccer shoes or
Denizen of Katmandu.

Snoozing Yeti or
Napping Yak.

Mozart's wig or
Tolstoy's beard.

Triple layer Lemon Bourbon cake or
Insidious alien from top secret Area 51.

Hypotenuse of a Euclidian triangle or
Cheerleader's pompoms.

Lady Gaga's eye-patch or
Blackbeard the Pirate's manbag.

Garfield's stand-in Chester A. Arthur or
Coney Island hot dog.

Pippi Longstocking's pony tails or
Fannie Mae's empty purse.

Wombat disguised as a chicken or

Java Chip Frappuccino with extra whipped cream and chocolate drizzle on top.

Vision from the mind of Hieronymus Bosch or

Salvador Dali's handlebar mustache.

Great Pyramid of Giza or
Fearsome feline predator, bane to all barnyard mice.

It is curious that what appears obvious to one person can be so completely different to another (i.e. religion, politics, art, sports, etc.).

Although today's post seems utterly absurd, it poses the question, does perception depend more on objective observation or subjective frame of mind?
