Unintentional Faces In Objects

You look at them… They look right back at you! (but do they bite?)

Today we are going to explore face-like patterns in inanimate objects, and will urge you to get out and take a few pictures of your own: find a weird face in something that’s not supposed to have any faces, take a picture and send it to us! Even mundane, everyday objects and often-visited places can reveal a face, if looked at a different angle…

Faces everywhere! Is there a room in the world without a face hidden somewhere?? –




Pareidolia phenomenon is well-known, even causing havoc in some religious circles (remember the toast with a likeness of Jesus sold on eBay for a tidy sum?). But really, it’s pretty easy to find some drooping eyes and a crooked mouth just about anywhere:

“Screaming” faces seem to appear more often the “smiling” ones:


Fearsome Toothsome:

This face is quite intentional, of course (located at Ghibli Museum). Such wonderful manhole lids can be often seen in Japan, where it became a kind of urban art:

Snow faces are numerous and easy to find:

This cactus is not Photoshopped, according to the info we have (although hardly anything else is known about the origin of this picture):

If this collection whets your appetite for locating and photographing weird faces in unexpected objects and places, then perhaps you’d like to check out this site, dedicated to this activity – Faces in Places. They constantly update with new faces, there is a book you can buy, and they have extensive archives.
