Naked woman seen in tree
SEEING visions of faces, bodily forms and even Jesus or the Virgin Mary in nature is not unusual.
In the past 12 months we have given you a photo of a man's face in a cloud from former Northern Star editor Russell Eldridge and the face of Jesus seen by Louise van Dartel of Alstonville in a crumpled barbecue cover.
Worldwide in recent years, people have seen tears of oil dripping down the face of a painting of the Virgin Mary (France) and a crying statue of the Virgin (Medford, Massachusetts).
Yesterday The Northern Star was contacted by Jenny Sherwin of Coraki abuzz with excitement because she saw a naked lady in a tree.
Ms Sherwin first saw the shadowy form from her bed in a caravan next to a Crown land reserve - and it freaked her out, because she thought at first it was a hanging man.
But on closer inspection, she made out the form she described to us as a naked lady.
Some can see it, some can't.
"Can't you see how she looks like she's got a pageboy hairstyle, she's got shadows for eyes and she's wearing a necklace?" Ms Sherwin enthused.
"Look, there are her boobs, and you can see one buttock and a leg that goes right down like a ... like a limb - and she's really in proportion!"
Ms Sherwin said she had even shown Aboriginal media identity Rhoda Roberts a picture she took on her phone in case Ms Roberts saw something culturally significant in this apparition on a piece of land Ms Sherwin believes to be slated for a native title claim.
She told The Northern Star that Ms Roberts had said, cryptically: "Looks like they're showing themselves to white people now."
She had also got some young teenage boys to come and have a look, and once they got past their giggles at Ms Sherwin pointing out the apparition's private parts, one of them said: "Nature is so amazing".
"I'm so excited!" Ms Sherwin said.
"I feel like I've got company here and I'm really privileged."
