      Ah! Inky, the master of the subliminal! I'm usually pretty good at that but you have proven to be the master. This is horn though. Maybe coincidence? I have only worked with horn once, but can't imagine what would be used to produce that effect. Maybe it's like looking for images in clouds. I agree, that sounds a bit lame as it is so distinct. Good eye girl. Well, it's not my face (even in the 70's).
