Have you ever seen faces, forms or figures in mundane places or objects? Take, for example, the sad man on the moon - a classic case of pareidolia.

Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving the perception of patterns, especially of rudimentary faces, where none actually exist.

If you spot any examples of pareidolia around you, share your pictures and vote for your favorites as well!

That's obviously art. It doesn't count as pereidolia because it was done on purpose.
