Middle Earth Tree Worship Vindicated: Ent Appears in Boreal Vision

Millions of religious adherents around the world express a sense of vindication every time something that looks to them like the Virgin Mary appears on a garage door or an oil tanker or a potato chip or a piece of wood or flaking paint or an oyster shell.

If our perception of the image of a mythical creature upon some found object indicates that creature’s reality, then what does this image I happened upon in the woods today imply?

O Elbereth! Fitzer had it right: Ents are real!
