An Old Face. Eye Spy.

A face in a birch tree Finland
A face in a birch tree found by my dad in Finland.

I was fascinated by this “face” in an old birch tree. It’s right eye seemed to spy on me whenever I passed the wall where my dad has his tree art collection. I came back to look at it several times during my recent visit. Perhaps expecting it to tell me a story. Reveal what it had spied on while still in the forest. Spill out the secrets. But it remained tight-lipped.

I wish you a peaceful week.

    1. I saw it that way too at first, and still do when I look at this picture quickly in a smaller format. My dad has an eye for these natural formations when he walks in our forest.

    1. I love to spot those faces too. Last year I found two faces in the huge birch tree in dad’s front yard, but this year they were gone, overgrown. Happy you liked this one, Karen.

  1. COOL!!!!!! Just pulled my nose out of the pics I took today and I did nearly the same thing with some of them!! Tiny! We seem to be on the same wavelength! 😉 ❤

    1. I am sure this one has seen a lot. Has probably met many of my ancestors as that forest has been in the family for quite a while 🙂

    1. I thought this piece was picture worthy – when I first walked towards it I saw the face so clearly. It’s amazing as it has the lips, the nose and the chin. And a small piece of hair coming down on its forehead 🙂

    1. Mr. Birch has lived a long life in the forest that my great grandparents once owned, and I’d love to hear his stories 🙂 Have a wonderful week, Koko XX

    1. My dad is 92 and it seems he has a keen eye for this type of natural “art”. Among other things, he has a “couple”, Adam and Eve 🙂

  2. Great finding dear Tiny!It does excite imagination,it takes the form of a face with real spying eyes or like a one-eyed Cyclops.Superb response to the challenge and very very originative!Stay well my friend ~ Have a wonderful & creative day 🙂 xxx

    1. All thanks for this “face” goes to my 92 y.o. dad. He has collected quite a few “art pieces” from the forest over the years 🙂 Thanks for your kind words, dear Doda XXX

Would love to hear your thoughts!
