Pareidolia of landscape

I like the culture of appreciating the Pareidolia phenomenon, such as the views of the horizon, celestial bodies, buildings and trees that appear in the cross-sections of Paegina stones and discoloration of ceramic ware. The moment when I am fascinated by the fake scenery created by Pareidolia is a truly exciting experience with slight anxiety that my mind flies beyond space-time and is likely to be taken away to a distant world.


During creation, I cherish the microcosm of Pareidolia that emerges from the layers of Japanese paper. Below piece looks like a distant view of the city.

Below is a Paegina stone purchased in Paris. The owner, Claude Boullé, a fantasy minerallogist, had been to Italy to cut out stones so I couldn't meet him.

In the upper section, you can see steep cliffs, the sea coast and dark clouds in the sky. In the lower section, you might find tent-like objects, figures in the vast wilderness, and houses in the distance.
