Image on My Steps

For seven years I've been ascending and descending the wooden stairs that lead from my living room to my loft area in my log cabin (which I call "Svendsen's Skovbo"--that's Danish for "house in the woods"), nestled in the Rocky mountains of Colorado. Just a few days ago I was walking up the stairs and noticed something I'd never seen before. In one of the knots on the pine plank is this image. Here it is enlarged:

I don't know whether to build a shrine to it, or place it on ebay--or both. If anyone has any suggestions, you can post them on the Areopagus :) . Let me know if you think this could be my equivalent of the "grilled-cheese Mary"--my money-generating "pet rock" as it were.
