illusion of face

illusion of face
or illusion of tree bole
do you see them both?

I always look for this face on one of the many a buckeye trees that grow in a flat area between hill and creek. Many trees have tree boles, some formed when bark grows over a broken branch, others caused by some kind of insect infestation. This one is very large and so old that it is so disintegrated that it looks like a skeleton's skull. After a snowstorm, it looks almost jaunty, topped by a white cap.
