Friday Faceoff — “Woody”


I can’t take credit for anything about this face except noticing it while I was sweeping our porch floor. Noticing faces everywhere happens to me often, it’s called “Pareidolia”. It’s defined on the web as a “psychological phenomenon of seeing faces in everyday objects…a very human condition that relates to how our brains are wired”. This one inspired me to create a similar clay face,
however, that is not done yet. I’ll post it next week. I hope it’s as interesting as this one in wood!

  3. I have always seen faces in things. When I was a child I would see them in the designs of wallpaper and such, even though there were no actual faces there.
    Great find!
