There have been several depictions of the iconic ‘Alien Face’ in crop circles over the years, the most famous perhaps being the huge ‘Alien Face and Disc’ at Crabwood in Hampshire back in 2002. Whatever the alien is that seems to haunt our psyche it does seem that it is somehow connected in part with the crop circles. The classic alien face seems to be a major archetype of modern times, and therefore perhaps it would be a mistake to interpret it too literally as we have done with many stories about non-human visitors for many years. Perhaps if the alien archetype means anything it is the existence of a genuine unknown at the heart of our reality, that we have had periodic contact with over thousands as years, and interpreted as Gods in the past and as ETs in the present. However, I suspect both these interpretations are in fact cultural filters and what truly lies behind them is yet to be discovered. This formation looks like a feathered mask to me – I wonder what would would happen if we were to remove it – what might truly lie beneath? It’s one of the biggest questions we face and is intimately I think connected to a new state of human consciousness. Many people talk about ‘disclosure’, but I suspect that what disclosure is truly about is peeling back our cultural filters enough to reveal this unknown that persistently and increasingly resides in the midst of our minds, culture and reality.
FYI: This formation features in our 2016 Crop Circle Photo Box-Set and you can see a section of 10 x 15 inch Photo Enlargements from this season here and 20 x 30 inch Photo Enlargements here. This formation also features in our Crop Circle Calendar 2017 and our Crop Circle Year Book 2016. Every sale helps us continue our work!
Please Help to keep us Flying: If you have enjoyed this site, looking at our pictures and information please consider making a small donation to keep us flying. There are so few of us left regularly recording the circles it’s really important that we continue. And while some now use drones to record the circles, it is important that there are still images taken from aircraft where the best quality camera equipment can be used and images that include the broad vista of the landscape can be taken. This kind of photography is expensive and it gets harder with each passing year to raise the funds we need to continue our work, but if everyone who regularly looked at this website made a small donation we would meet the funds we need. You can make a donation here.

This will be fascinating to look at geometrically. What geometry might underlie the design? It’s another on the list for the drawing board – check back for updates…
