I'm quite amazed at how nature has taken over the place, but I guess relatively high humidity encourages great root growth.

This can't be right, I'm amazed that the locals have allowed it to happen. However it's another great shot from the series.

All the way throughh the series, there have been examples of nature and faith battling-or being in perfect harmony(Depending on your viewpoint). None more so than here where the difference between one and the other is almost impossible to see

A very interesting shot of this created face and its location! Amazing effort to sculpt this!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Wonderful, and I like that you view this as either emerging or being consumed. It certainly has the look of being both at once!
