Comments IC5068 is located immediately below the Pelican, IC5070. Step back 5ft and look at this image. Do you see the Hippy looking to the lower left? Uncanny, I can see his right shoulder, neck, chin and lips, beard and black hair hanging over his left temple and cheek bone, his ear is in the upper right corner.
