Pareidolia

Here's the entrance to the "Laundry Chute" at Royal Arch Cave. The group had gone through, with each of us instructed to touch a certain rock "for luck" - though it was also a useful hand hold for me.


I don't think any of us had noticed the "face" at the time. Look on the right of the shot here and it's quite obvious. The rock we had been touching was the lip and chin. Throughout the tour our attention was called to a number of patterns in rocks and staining that  were suggestive of various animals and people.
