Publication of Discovery: Dec. 31, 2022
Issue: December, 2022

In this ecotreasures ® magazine issue, we are rendering tribute to nature’s creative ways to surprise via optical illusions or by its magnificence per se. Therefore, this special issue spotlights seven extraordinary and impressive discoveries we have witnessed and that show the above, describing one under each ecotreasures magazine’s category. Though we have been astonished by Mother Earth on many occasions, we have chosen peculiar findings to share for purposes of this recognition. Keep reading and you will learn about an incredible natural portrait seen while walking on a nature-and-art path.

We immersed in African and Taíno indigenous people’s history and culture during a guided walking tour in Caguas Botanical Garden located in Municipality of Caguas, Puerto Rico. We listened to the tour guide’s interpretation while admiring outstanding sculptures created by well-known artist Samuel Lind and Juan Santos Torres (also known as Picapiedras de Guavate) in honor of Puerto Rico’s African and Taíno heritage. Following our walk on “Arboleda ancestral africana” and “Arboleda ancestral taína” trails, we thought we had seen all the history-related highlights on the tour’s path. However, as we approached a particular tree, we saw something wonderful on its trunk: an African face profile’s representation. The picture speaks for itself so look it up in this article’s photo gallery.

Be attentive at all times while exploring historical places, culture, and the outdoors. You may be dazzled by nature when least expected.
