The eyes in the wall were a bizarre phenomenon experienced by a woman named Vaneet Kaur in 2003. The phenomenon was witnessed in Essex, England. When venturing to her room to retrieve her iPod, Kaur noticed a large abnormality on the wall.


The phenomenon manifested as a pair of human female eyes. The iris and pupil of each eye were clearly visible. The pair of eyes was so big that it rivaled the size of the wall itself. As she focused on the eyes, it seemed to her as if the eyes were finely sketched onto the wall. The eyes had mascara in a way that ancient Egyptians wore depicted in hieroglyphs. (
