The picture is worth it. It's a frankly amazing little quirk of nature there. :)

Dude, I'll say.  Interesting wood grain, that is!

Wow. I've seen some weird wood grain in my days, but this takes the cake (or possibly even the communal wafer).

You made baby jesus cry.

Seriously though, the image is the one to the rear-right of the picture. It's a full figure, either standing in a classical archway door or lying in some sort of coffin-type-thing.. His head is near the top and his hands are roughly in the middle, almost folded over his lap. he's also apparently wearing a hood or cowled robe, at least that's what it looks like to me. :)

I only see the masked lizard boss from Legend of Zelda in there, does that make me a spiritually bad person?

Yes. I should burn you, but I'm all out of matches.

Speaking of freaky wood grain, I swear I've seen Treebeard on the lavatory door in our summer house. I guess that makes a bit more sense (Ents probably having been cut down and chipped finely to make that door).

Probably not, but then again, all I can see is a water buffalo...
