Simulacra | rock-beings in Cornwall

Carn KenidjackSimulacra are natural forms - such as rocks - that look like beings.
Trees, clouds and landscape features can qualify too, but here we're looking at rocks.

Simulacra are a symptom of the enchanted aspect of nature.
And it's all in how you see things.
One of the world's richest places for simulacra
is the area just south of Land's End around Pordenack Point.
Here, the granite formed in ways which have produced many suggestive, magical forms.
There are simulacra in other parts of Penwith too.
