Can you find the faces?

Sorry to be posting so little these days. Work is extremely busy right now - back-to-back meetings for days on end! - and the home computer has, wouldn't you know it, gone all wonky (I believe that's the technical term).

So, until I get my life running a little more smoothly here's something to keep you amused. I used to love solving these kinds of puzzles when I was little.

How many faces can you see in the picture below? [There are supposed to be 9]

I can only find 8 (if the dog counts).

I think I've got 9 if the dog counts.

I had the same question about the dog. Are you going to post the solution to this puzzle?

The dog does NOT count! And yes, I will post the answer to the puzzle. Probably not before Wednesday, though - no time to spare, I'm afraid. Be patient, and all will be revealed.

The answer ... as promised.

The nine faces in this picture are as follows:

1. Girl's face (frontal view) - holding baby in centre-right of picture.

2. Baby's face (profile) - being held by girl in centre-right of picture.

3. Man's face (frontal view) - standing centre-left next to the girl with baby

4. Man's face (left profile) - centre of picture, with features formed by arch, man & girl

5. Girls face (right profile)- extreme right, above right pillar and to the right of the arch

6. Mans face (left profile) - beside the bird statue on the left side of the picture (forehead, nose, mouth & chin formed by the statue's base)

7. Girls face (left profile) - formed by the bird statue and the flying bird (Tip: face is tipped up)

8. Girls face (frontal view) - to the left of the bird statue

9. Girls face (right profile) - formed by the left side of the base of the bird statue.
