First Michael Jackson’s ‘ghost’ moonwalks through Neverland, now the face of the late singer has miraculously shown itself on a tree stump in Stockton, California.
Fans have flocked to the town after local Felix Garcia spotted the ‘likeness’ while gardening a few days after the star’s death.
“I was standing by that bush, and I looked up and saw that image here,” Garcia says of the moment he discovered Jacko’s face.
“I walked up to it, and I said, man, this looks like Michael Jackson.”

Since his discovery, Garcia said neighbors and complete strangers have been dropping by to take a look.

Neighbour Juanita Hernandez agrees the singer can be seen in the stump.
She said: “You can see it. There’s something there.”

Garcia said he believed the image most resembled MJ in his early twenties before plastic surgery.
“I just hope it lasts a long time,” he added.
“I hope to take some pictures of it and blow them up because there are a lot of people who loved him.”
We can’t help thinking that if Michael’s face were to appear somewhere, it would be in some plastic.
Still, the unusual shrine could provide an alternative focal point for the thousands of fans who missed out on tickets to the Staples Centre memorial service, although we doubt it.
