Anyone know what this is...?

This strange creature was found on a plant leaf in the garden.
Looks like a face has been pained on it. Definitely real as it moved of its own accord.
Have no idea what it is... any one else seen one before?

The nearest I can find from a Google search is an elephant hawk moth caterpillar.

I would tend to agree, if you reckon that's peculiar look at the Lobster Moth
