A Santa Fe landscaper is offering for sale a rock on which he believes he sees the face of Jesus Christ.

Paul Marcus said he was finishing up a water feature in a yard at a Rancho Viejo home south of the city when he set up on its end a 40- to 50-pound stone — about 20 inches tall and 16 to 18 inches wide — that he intended to incorporate into the landscape.

    I can't decide if this is funny or just plain sad. Or maybe I should be spending more time trying to find a religious figure in the stucco patterns on my walls.

    Wasn't it Nietzsche who said, "If you look long enough at a rock, the rock begins to look back at you."

    Thank you. That word was worth looking up definition. Agreed.

    Amazing! It can only be the face of Christ. Certainly the generous 10% offer to the church is more than enough for a pass through the golden gates. What is the going rate for His miraculous image on a garden rock these day? I especially like the "Desperate for Aid" article next to it. Perhaps the fortunate landscaper can find it in his religious heart to give an additional 2% of his Jesus profits to feed the Philippine survivors.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one to see a resemblance to Jabba the Hutt there. I think a certain gardner has been too exposed to a certain kind of weed.

    I want to know more about the outdoor water feature. I thought they were illegal in Santa Fe County.

    Roll Away the Stone... to the highest bidder. Too funny! Looks more like Jabba the Hutt http://tinyurl.com/kzdu748
    Very
    generous though, to donate 10% of his share of his client's rock to the church.

    Why is it that every time something resembling a face appears on something inanimate it has to be Jesus?
