    I tough you guys would get a laugh out of this. Using Google Earth to plan a walk I saw this:

    I am guessing that is the point as well. Must be some automated software that does this stuff.

    I don't see a blur. Doesn't that statue wear a mask?

    Having worked with Civil Engineers and Architects for 34 years, getting a kick out of something means they looked up, snorted and went back to wondering what the coffee stain on their blueprints actually means.

    I couldn't figure it out either. Like Joe mentioned, why blur out the face when they're wearing masks.

    There is a head in the middle just below the main figure. Looks like he has antlers or something.

    Yes, it's the lower of the two faces. Beneath antlers and between the wings.
    Top face is not blurred out.
