I went to the museum the other day and was surprised to find these certain rocks. It's like they were intelligently designed. I guess my eyes must be playing tricks on me.
I thought I would share some photos I took and you can see for yourself. To me it seems like these rocks were aware of their surroundings when they became formed, or something like that. I'm not sure how to explain it. I've heard of things like owners starting to look like their pets, but this is rocks.

Anyways, I've know about pareidolia in large rocks and cliffs. Like these two for example:



But not in little rocks like someone drew on them. It fascinated me, maybe you will enjoy the pictures.







This one is my favorite. the owl looks good, and I swear I see a woman's face.


I did not alter the alter the photos except for cropping them. Here are the originals.








There you go. Are my eyes playing tricks on me? Hopefully you enjoy them. The lady and the owl kinda blew me away. If you have any nature pareidolia items you have photographed, please share.

It saddens me to know that rocks are a better artist than I am.

When I was in boot camp, one of our division commanders would call us "You bunch of rocks!!" and now I feel like I regained some ego points b/c surely he meant all the beautiful rocks in this thread.

S&F!!

That one is my favorite too. It remind me of a Van Gogh painting.

Not one that I've photographed but ....



I think some of the most beautiful things in nature are formed in the rock and crystal of the Earth.
Great pics.

wow, some of those ARE amazing. i think i'm with others in saying that the athena and her owl one was really amazing.

but, i'm thinking this can't just be 100% just found unadulterated rocks. i think the artist finds suitable pieces of natural rock and uses pencil or perhaps some other medium to make outlines and give the patterns definition to let the actual picture take better shape.

i have a really hard time believing that the woman's features, her eyes, eyebrows, nose and lips are part of the natural coloration of that rock. same with the owl's eyes and nose outline.

if the complete face of that woman is natural that is insane! any more information about the "artist" or exhibit?

That's E.T. you have there! OP, I must say Athena and her Ool Rhyolite is something else, no need to worry about seeing things


Here's the Cosmos in Rhyolite,

My personal favorite , not natural but a good example of our brain's ability to find a face where it can,

They were in a museum will dinosaur eggs, crystals, etc. They were passing them off as real. I will try to get better pics with descriptors of the rocks. It's a drive from house though.

Here's a piece I did catch of the descriptor for Picture Jasper.

Good one.

That is out of this world. Be real cool to have a rock like that rounded into a sphere.
These rocks are far more creative and artistic than me.

Check out my avatar. It is 700 lbs of what we call Oregon Jade and it is sitting in my front yard. My wife sees it as a qnome while I see it as an ET.
