The Hidden Star Puzzle

Can you find a traditional 5-point star shape within this illustration? Look carefully, it may be hard to find, but once you find it, you'll always "see" it when you look at this picture. This puzzle was created by Sam Loyd (1841 - 1911), who was a chess player, puzzle author, and recreational mathematician. We want you to find the star on your own, but if you get frustrated and want the answer, then view it here.
