I’m sharing a puzzle with you today: a patterned rock we found a few years ago, somewhere in the North of England. Don’t ask me precisely where, because I’m not sure. It was one of many small treats you find on a moorland walk. If you tend to see things in patterns, there’s scope for the imagination in its ornate surface.
For me, there is one baleful eye, with an unrelated, more amenable Bleep-like character immediately above it (Bleep was the alien spaceman from planet Myron in Bleep and Booster).
I’ve cut out the section here, but enlarging it does not help. To find the alien (roughly centre), look for an eye, then a crooked but generous smile, and two antennae above.
Setting aliens from outer space carved on rocks aside, isn’t it a wonderful piece of stone? My feet got in the way of the picture, but I’ll let myself off as they help convey the size of the rock.
There could be a natural reason for its beautiful surface – the remains of old sea plants, perhaps – or it may have been carved, long ago. My guess, until someone corrects me, is the latter.
