    The way i see it..

    ..it's both..His head and legs are 'outside' the "box", but his body and arms are 'inside' the "box"..;)

    hmm.. this seem like illusion.. is that really a box?
    my guess there is no box at all..
    because the piece that running from top right to bottom should be behind the horizontal piece at the front..

    there is no box...ive seen this one befor...it looks really convincing, but this angle makes it seem off a bit......unless malayali is playing tricks on us, and built a slightly deformed box to trick all of us who think we know the trick

    i dont think malayali built the box. it looks like an exhibition or something. i think i am sure now, after looking at the picture again, that there's no box. it is just a structure that is made to look like a box at a certain angle. perhaps malayali had to stand at a designated spot in order to get that effect in the picture. :D

    DING DING DING; you hit the nail right here. It is an exhibition & there is no box at all. It is just an open structure that from an angle looks like my son is standing is inside a box. Optical illusion.

    & No, I didn't change anything in the picture or the structure. We had gone to Children's Museum here in Dallas & this was just one of the pieces they created optical illusion(s). Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera with me!!!! Darn.
