Legends of ghosts and ghouls lurking in and around the forests of the world are renowned and have been represented in many art forms for centuries and here we see a representation by mother nature herself. I came across this ‘natural carving’ peaking out from around a tree in a local forest here on the be BC coast. To me it has a likeness to the Frankenstein monster played by Boris Karloff, but others may see it differently, if at all.
I often see artistic impressions and interpretations like this as I make my way around the wilderness looking for wildlife. Quite often it is very much in the eyes of the beholder – not everyone sees it or notices it straight away. I’ve featured some here before, ‘Heart of the Great Bear Rainforest’ for example and today’s is one that for some reason I just can’t help stopping and looking at every time I pass it by. Stand or lean back, focus on the image and hopefully you can ‘see it’ too!
