Which one do you see?

 This is the view from the cabin window at the front of the cottage on Saturna.  There's an interesting snag at the edge that captures everyone's attention.  A few years ago it had some living branches above it but in a winter storm those broke off, leaving this caricature for all to see.

Here's a closer look.  Some people tell me they see the face of Saint Francis inside a hood or a cowl with his hand extended to the left.  Others (like me) see a witch's face with a big staring eye and a sharp nose and stern mouth facing to the left and an arm extended out to the right.

What do you see when you look at it?  Maybe you see something completely different.


  1. I see St. Francis !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I saw Saint Francis immediately but can now also see the witch. I love these kinds of natural pieces of art.


I really appreciate your comments.
