Contest Rules

Mysterious FacesWhat makes a face mysterious?

Perhaps it is just out of view, maybe it's obscured by something else, maybe it's the lighting, maybe it's because it's inanimate or maybe it's because we aren't sure if it's a face at all.

This contest is for mysterious faces rules are:

Can be inanimate or animate.
Can be human or inhuman.
Can be present or merely alluded to.
Can be natural or unnatural (as in formed by nature or found in nature but not, strictly speaking, a face)

The composition must make us interested in the mysterious face. Just having a face in your work won't foot the bill.
Must be mysterious.

I've included some limited examples. These and a few others submitted to the Mystery group are what inspired this contest.
