    It's called pareidolia. The tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the viewer; such as interpreting marks on Mars as canals or seeing shapes in clouds.


    But I got to admit. Looks like a skull to me. Pretty freaky.

    Skull Island, I wonder if King Kong is around

    I just read a NYT op-ed mentioning that The Scream was influenced by Krakatoa, even up in Oslo:

    And one even more famous painting speaks of Krakatoa as well: recent research suggests that Edvard Munch a decade later painted “The Scream” while remembering a night in Oslo that had been much affected by the volcanic dust. Indeed, the climatic records show that the swirling orange skies behind the terror-stricken face match perfectly those recorded that winter in southern Norway.
