Staring right back at me as I looked out the kitchen window this morning was a face that could only have been created by Gary Larson. It had been there in the Great Wall, unnoticed, for weeks. We humans have a tendency to anthropomorphize (the attribution of human characteristics or behavior to a god, animal, or object, metric) just about everything we see, but I don’t know how often we do it in the style of a particular artist. Now I will have to find more. An excellent article on Larson’s career is found here. I just ordered his There’s a hair in my dirt! A worm’s story. Shows you where I come from.
Postscript: I got the book. It’s a hoot! Highly recommended for those who love wildlife and would like to understand how to deal with it. One of Larson’s best!
