Satanic cloud above Statue of Liberty

Over at, in honor of the Fourth of July, I just posted The 10 Weirdest Moments in the History of the Statue of Liberty, one of those moments being the time in 1989 (or maybe it was 1990 - sources differ), when two Irish tourists on vacation in NYC took a photo of Lady Liberty. It was only when they got back home and developed the photo that they noticed a "Satanic face" in the clouds leering down at her. I'll let you decide for yourself what meaning, if any, this might have. But as far as cloud photos go, it's a pretty famous one.

Also, Happy Fourth of July!

To me, the face looks more like Michaelangelo's god in the sistin chapel.

Close, but not quite.

Yup Expat. Except I wanted to do a direct link to the original image. And yes it is 'Sistine' not 'sitrin'.

I thought of Jesus looking over Lady Liberty, not a demon. BMN, that is a good likeness too.

I just see a bunch of fuzzy clouds. But not being a artistic type I have a hard time imagining or seeing hidden things or being able to interpret images. Back in the early seventies an artist friend had a striking resemblance to the biblical Satan and enhanced it with the proper clothing accessories and light make up. He got picked up by ladies all the time and they just wanted to have sex with him. I being the wing man got second choice and they were lusty.

The nose looks like Michael Jackson's.

It looks like my driver's license photo!

@Gator Guy -- it's one of those things you don't see until you do, and then you can't un-see it. Draw a line from the back of her head to the tip of her right elbow. Draw a perpendicular from that line's center point. As soon as you pass the dark grey cloud, you hit his forehead.

@Virtual: Which one?

@GatorGuy: You forgot to tell him to hold the tip of his tongue in his teeth so it's just protruding out the left side of his mouth.

Whoa...people who can find demons in photos have waaaay too much time on their hands. I'll take some of that time.
