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!

I laughed so much...and decided to start taking photos of "faces" myself, too! I´ve always seen faces around me from the very childhood...

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

Hi, You are so creative. This is amazing! Nice picture!  I’d like to publish this picture for my book to have creative imagination. Please let us know if this is permitted to use this picture. It is difficult to recognize the real world definitely. Situation awareness is the key to solve the problem. I’d like to enlighten the people perception bios. Best regards, Hideshi Ishida
