Fine Art/Persistence of Memory


Would you please tell me where the hidden face is in Persistence of Memory?  I have a print and cannot find it.  Challenging as that was, it is now complete frustration!
Please advise.
Thank you,

Dear Charlie,

Look at the “blob” with a melted clock in the center of the painting and start with the eye lashes. The face is a profile with a closed eye, a nose, and what appears to be a tongue extruding from the nose. It may be easier to see if you rotate the image 90 degrees clockwise.

If you still cannot see it, send me your email address and I will send you a cropped and turned photo of the image.

I hope this is helpful.

Best regards,

Fine Art
