Platte Clove Road NY - The Eye?

Does anyone know anything about the origin of this sculpture on Platte Clove Road / Rte. 16 (between Tannersville and West Saugerties)?

You'll have to ignore the gallery's collection of bad compositions, improper exposures, and amateurish post processing.

Well from this second angle, you can see why somebody took the time to carve it out. Looks like a bearded face in the rock.

That it does.

Further up the road, right where the Clove is at the top of that rise, there's a cabin that is offered to artists through grants. I suspect the eye was another sponsored artist project. But then again. . . if I were to stop and do my own carving, would I be arrested for vandalism?

Interesting, though, no?
As is those frog eyes (?), the first image in your gallery. It made me laugh.
