Harpoon Rock photograph and painting

This is the actual photo I took after I had finished my two-hour painting. Next is the painting itself - "Harpoon Rock" at Harling Point in Victoria BC. Acrylic on canvas 8 x 10, painted en plein air.

 I learnt that Harpoon Rock is an ERRATIC, dragged down to the seashore during the ice age some fifteen-thousand years ago! Not only that, the rock had religious significance to a local tribe.

This painting of mine suggests different things to different people. What do YOU see? I see a face or perhaps the rear of a bear:
