Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon in which people find significant meaning in random stimuli.  Such as seeing human faces in random shapes, like clouds.

Elido Turco is an Italian photographer who uses our natural propensity for finding faces, to create surreal, fantastic creates out of organic elements.

Using just a camera and a mirror, he creates arrangements that are full life and narrative.

You can see more of these 'forest faces', along with Elido's other work, on his Flickr page.
