Best ever nominee, if context is taken into account. See how many faces you can find in this cloud, including a full top half of the Goddess of Liberty (hint for the goddess:lower right-hand corner).





I am not seeing it, maybe it is too small or maybe you are poking fun.

Star anyway!

Ha! Those are cool. Reminds me of the tiny alien photos that some UFO hoaxster was hawking a while back.....might have been Greer. These look like the head of the alien he was putting pics of out on the net.

Keep at it, it's worth it!

As for Mars rock pics, here are a few examples out of dozens of very good ones:



Here's a Mars demon for your viewing displeasure,


And last but not yeast, BlueIt himself (we still miss ya)

Here's a test:



A simple face until you look closer. The difference between illusions and Pareidolia is the illusion is designed to be seen where as Pareidolia is not.

Sure, that is an illusion that was made to look like that. Pareidolia is when it is not made to look that way like the pic I posted....yet you still see what appears to be something else.

I think this one defines the term, it certainly was the first image that popped into my head. At least a few avatars here use it.



Found this while looking for the one above.

Yeah....someone here has an avatar of that first one. Seems I recall that one was made by an artist though, not naturally occurring.

That second one I have always loved.....great moment to capture a pic!

I did not know that, I guess I never had reason to question it.

No wonder I couldn't find a high res version with a quick search, probably copyrighted.

That old "jesus"photo is a classic pareidolia.
Have you seen the "demon dog" from an old thread on ATS?
Interestingly,the photo turned the guys life around-he quit abusing drugs after seeing a "demon" on his shoulder..


What amazes me more than pareidolia itself,is the way nature utilises it as a form of defence to scare away other predators...than is some weird subconsciouness at work if ever I saw it.
From tigers with fake eyes on the back of their ears(tigers attack from behind),to fake faces on caterpilla tails-just how the hell did these traits develop?
To me they suggest a part of developmental consciousness that we are yet to fully understand.
And this involves plants as well as animals-certain flowers will mimic types of insect,so that type of insect will attempt to mate with the flower,thus spreading the pollen.

I also love how Salvador Dali used pareidolia in his paintings.

We humans,animals and even plants all have some in built awareness of faces/imagery of other species.
Amazing and mysterious IMO.
Cool Thread VC!

OMGosh! That's a new one for me. So creepy! Even knowing it's just a trick of light and shadow, you still can't un-see the creepy ghost/witch/thing in the tree.

I've been showing my youngest daughter lately how ridiculously easy it is to convincingly fake ghost and UFO pictures and videos - because she's still a little gullible about such things - and I also have shown her various examples of pareidolia as well, but now I can hopefully show her several examples right here if this thread takes off.

Great idea OP!

That's because it was made blatantly obvious what the 'hidden face' is. Pareidolia is seeing something in nothing, not seeing the face of jesus in a painting or photo that was obviously put there.

A favorite topic of mine, although, sadly, we often get into some heated discussion as the CGI/photoshop crowd and the pareidolia group trade barbs trying to prove one another 'wrong'. I stopped arguing about 'authenticity' and 'validity' about this some years ago, when a few unmentionable members here, some of whom for which I have deep respect, started posting tons of Mars and Moon pictures with all manner of 'found' objects in them, and the conversation quickly degenerated into a 3-way pissing-match among CGI/photoshopers/ the pareidolia-types, and the "REAL-thing" groupies.

Truthfully, these days, it's hard to tell what's been 'doctored' or enhanced and what is 'as-you-would-see-it', but it's still fun and intriguing, and if nothing else, gives us a bit of insight into how the human mind works.

Here's a few faves:

So you are of the opinion that the face of jesus was put in that photo? Ok....I don't think the same thing, but to each their own!

I always liked this one too.



Ok, that's enough from me, I should let others play.

Thanks for the smiles Vasa!
