The person in a Portrait always looks at me?!

Kunal Asks:

“when we look continuously into the eyes of a person in a photo frame and change our position then the person appears to follow us.why is it so?”

 

Ans: Because the portrait is inanimate and is drawn in such a way that it is looking at the spectator. So, it will seem to be looking at you when you look at it. But this will not happen in the case of a statue.
