There's one in the window, two eyes made up of those tree branches. There's probably one in the flames in the fire, and one made up of those tendrily grass things in the painting above the fireplace. . . at least I can see an eyebrow, a nose and a mouth made up by the pink flower. The other faces are probably likewise made up of bits and pieces. . . maybe in the carpet, the pattern on the chaise longue, etc. Am I getting warm?

A perfect example of why people see ghostly faces in photographs. Our minds are hard wired to recognise patterns and identify faces. (I know this is advertising facial identification on cameras, but point still stands.)

If you zoom in on the smart phone at the bottom right, you see where the faces are. Superman's X-ray vision would probably reveal a couple of faces under the skirts. LOL

There are allegedly 16 faces to be found.

Robert must be on holiday this week.

Tim, my eyes aren't good enough, even on magnify. But I did notice Howard the window-cleaner.

I see several too but can't make it big enough for maximum effect.

As was said, we look for patterns and see what we want to. Most notably in JtR studies we have Florence Maybrick's initials on the wall of Number 13, though I never could see it. More enterprising yet, someone said a certain mortuary photo was of MJK though it is usually said to be Kate Eddowes. The writer who identified MJK also claimed a picture of Prince Eddie was barely visible in the casket near her head.

There's one at the bottom of the pedestal supporting the table, and I think there are meant to be some other less convincing ones:
(1) at the bottom left of the bookcase
(2) on the reflection of the head of the man by the bookcase
(3) below the lampshade on the mantelpiece
(4) top left and top right of the fireplace, and probably midway between them as well.
