Not even a good photoshop job. Isn't it amazing how there's only ever one picture of these mysterious formations.. "zomg.. look at that.. a face.. let me take one picture, but only one.. because one is enough"

That's probably because it's not a Photoshop job, but a natural formation that vaguely resembles a face when viewed from a certain angle.

I wonder if the cliches or habits etc from the "face on Mars" debate are shaping this one here already?

It's not like this is on Mars or otherwise unreachable. It's up on a rock face, but academics that are into rock climbing is so common now they're even a stereotype. Someone will just climb up there and take a close look at it...maybe even get a small grant to do so...and it will be pretty obvious pdq whether tools were used or not.

This is not a very low res, orbital altitude photo of a ginormous "face" that would have to be larger than the Great Pyramid etc. I think it's much more likely to be a real, carved sort of thing, which probably took advantage of some natural similarity to a face.

Also, it might not be all that old. If this one guy has been looking for it for years now, and just now "found" it, he'd be my prime suspect if it turns out to be man made, but done so recently. They could tell that from the erosion, weathering, etc.

A mysterious face carved in a remote rock wall in the Vancouver Islands has been found again after years of searching for the feature of unknown origins.

The beachkeeper from the Tseshaht tribe that owns the land, Hank Gus, has been searching for the rock face for two years after it was first spotted in 2008 hidden on Reeks Island in the Broken Group Islands by a kayaker.

Mr Gus said he is not sure whether the almost 2m-tall face is an optical illusion created by Mother Nature or a message from his ancestors

Could be an example of pareidolia or it could be a carved face on a rock-face from an ancient and long-forgotten society. It will be interesting to hear what our members from Kanuckville have to say about this and whether there have been rumors and stories about this face before.

Anyway, short and sweet, and one for those of us who love a good old fashioned mystery.

Hey sublime, interesting find.

Two things that pop out to, I usually skip words and study what's being talked about.. nature doesn't lie.

The portion of the rocky wall this "face" is on, is discolored from the rest of its natural enviroment, including the rest of the wall.

The brown "stripe" where the face is in this portion... idk, speaks photoshop to me. Maybe the colouring is natural, would be nice if he had different angles of the subject.. that would defeat PS.

Secondly, that high is insane to carve out of rock. Balance, core strength, skill, and time needed just to even half ass this, is pretty difficult task I'd believe!

Not that it matters, but I don't feel like this is ancestry carving. To me, I'm seeing pareidolia, or photoshop, and some very poor photography.

If it is handcraft, respect to the human, that bent over backwards to stick a random face on a cave wall, that's pretty high up.

After zooming in it looks like a natural formation with a bit of pareidolia.

I have a habit of pareidolia with large rock formations for some reason and here's a formation that threw me when out in a forested slope. Probably similar to the OP's face but a smaller scale as I would estimate the height here under 8 feet.

Thought it might be a carving because it is near a reservation, but I'm not a geologist so it could be a natural formation.

First one in the shade of canopy mid day. Second one in the sunlight shortly thereafter has some other visual effects.

That Indian face with earbud headphones is exactly what I thought of when I read this! Glad you brought it up, and provided a link to photo.

Of course it's a rock, it's not plastic. But I wonder who carved a face out of that rock?

The wind, the rain, other rocks smashing against it... welcome to geology.

And, no doubt, the Mona Lisa was the result of just random drips of paint on a canvas. Tell us another miraculous fantasy.

Read the article at
more carefully. It clearly says that a number of pictures, as well as video, were taken. The fact that just one of these photos from the Tseshaht BeachKeeper facebook page appeared in the Ha-Shilth-Sa newspaper is not at all suspicious.

And it does not look like a natural formation. Even the oval contour of the head is represented. It is highly unlikely BOTH that and the facial features would arise from natural erosion.

If someone else posted this, apologies, but "faces". not "face". There are two of them.

Interesting stuff, to be sure! They look, at the least, enhanced, if not planned. S&F.

Not seeing it. They both look rather clearly like natural formations to me. The first one does look vaguely like a face (though quite inconsistent and distorted), the second one looks like, well, nothing.

You really can't see that?? It seems very clear to me. Check this zoomed in shot. The blue points to eyes, the yellow to the nose, and the green to what is visible for a mouth, somewhat behind other rock. Natural, carved, or a combination of the two, it still looks remarkably like a face. Some in dark, and some lighter, but a face.
