Pa-royal-dolia?

Can you see Queen Victoria?
The first instance of pareidolia at the Royal Arch Cave occurs as you approach the entrance. Apparently when William Atherton discovered the cave in 1888 he thought he could see Queen Victoria in the rocks above.  My mother swore to me it does look like her, though all I could make out was a woman, perhaps wearing a tiara.
