Cruciform Figure

Cruciform Figure
Originally uploaded by Victor Keech.

I'm not sure if it's a peculiarity of me or if abstract objects really do contain resemblances of other things. I was drawn to this because of the texture of the wood, but as I framed the picture I could not help but feel a figure with outspread arms was hiding in the crook. I'm not one for religious symbolism but find this disquieting.

I once saw the image of Jesus Christ "Turin Shroud" in a piece of jam spread toast.

Until I ate it.
