Hello,

I don't know if I'm just weird (or more than most), but sometimes when I see a Circassian Victrola I can see a face, or a bat or who knows what in the book matched veneer. I saw this oak machine recently and the knobs just looked like nostrils and I swear I see the Grinch from Dr. Seuss in the wood graining. Am I nut's or do see the faces of owls or bats, or faces in some of the machines book matched veneer you see occasionally? Do you have a face looking at you in a collection?

I can see some sort of an owl’s face in that grain.

That machine is possessed by some sort of demonic spirit... :roll: :? :lol:

I see it. Maybe Dr. Suess was inspired by something like this?

We are primed to see faces in every corner of the visual world.

And it's the Cheshire Cat !

My vote is LION. I look for faces in my hardwood floors - I find them all the time. But on a phono - that is cool!

In the apartment where I stay on summers, there's a tile floor with irregular scaled grey shapes, repetitive from one tile to the next, but with certain variations... It's the right place to see faces or persons, etc. I don't need to say in which room I stay seated for a while, looking at the floor... and starting to see faces everywhere! :D
