Product Description

This remarkable book is intended to reassure those who see faces and figures in trees, rocks, clouds and damp stains on walls. These simulacra, or shadowy likenesses to familiar objects, have fascinated artists and mystics from the earliest times, and every one of us has at some point been astonished to find a human face staring out from a piece of rock or timber. This book contains an astonishing collection of photographs, assembled by the author over many years, illustrating the figurative sculptures and art works of nature, and reveals the interplay between nature and the human imagination in the creation of the world as we know it.
