Definition: Gestalt Theory

This theory was made by German psychologists in the 1920s. The principle says that the human eye sees objects in their entirety before perceiving their individual parts. This means the perception of the things we see is very much affected by where they are and by what surrounds them. It basically comes down to the idea of“Things are more than the sum of their parts.”

For e.g. As we can see that although the panda is not complete, enough is present for the eye to complete the shape.
