They say it looks even more like the Virgin if you view it throgh a digital camera. The distortion adds to the illusion.

My sister lives in Chicago and has said that she's going to go and take some pictures of it. We'll see.

I believe it's PAIR-EYE-DOLE-EE-UH. That's how I say it, at least.

I wrote up my own adventure in pareidolia here: http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/misc/lenin.html

And I gotta say, I love this blog! Fun fun fun.

I don't know. I look at those, and I see something completely different. Maybe I should just get my mind out of the gutter.

I see it too, Paul! Reminds me of an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond" where Ray's mother takes a class in sculpture and her final work is reminiscent of a certain piece of the human anatomy of one particular gender...
I won't explain.

I agree that the image is just a salt stain. But I also think it has a very remarkable resemblance with the Guadalupe Virgin in Mexico City (Virgin Mary painting purported to be a miraculous image too). This likeness is what probably prompts believers to see more in the image. If you are familiar with the Guadalupe image you can't fail notice it immediately.

Also, if you remove what is supposed to be the head, it resembles external female genitalia a la O'Keefe. (as others have mentioned)

The Phillipine Marian Press release of a miracle rock image photos of the Virgin Mary recently posted on blog titled: "helpingafriend" or "Miracle Millennium of Mary" is truely awe inspiring. This one supersedes all other miracles I have seen, and further cushions my faith and belief in real miracles.

The recent miracle rock dubbed "Our Lady of the Third Millennium" with pictures and the story of the inheriter is amplifyingly fascinating. A picture is worth a thousand words and I felt peace just by looking at the pictures. See both sections at http://helpingafriend.blogspot.com and http://miraclemillenniumofmary.blogspot.com
