It is unrelated to the person's ability to see faces. Someone with perfect vision can suffer from prosopagnosia.

Only on the images that show only the statue, the whole area was dotted with houses and the signs of the thousands of people that went to the place during all those years.

But consider also the Giant Buhdas in Afghanistan that were destroyed by the Taliban. They appeared to be isolated and alone where they were as well.
Yes, not looking is the best way of not finding.
If a rock really really looks like a statue or a face or something else, it is ok to point that out without sounding like a kook so that "All" of us can look at it and make our own opinions.

It could also be said that this thread contains some excellent examples of persons afflicted with Prosopagnosia.
Prosopagnosia, or face-blindness, is a neurological condition that renders a person incapable of recognizing faces. It is unrelated to the person's ability to see faces. Someone with perfect vision can suffer from prosopagnosia.
I don't see the Virgin Mary in the sandwich as was claimed when the sandwich sold on e-bay for $28,000, it actually looks more like Marilyn Monroe to me

I must ask though, if the lighting was changed so you see different shadows, would you still see this same "statue"?

It sticks out like a sore thumb..
Bottom centre of the OP picture you'll see some rocks laying flat that are in a formation as shown in this crop of the image;
I'm a bit surprised nobody else saw it.. or even considered it.. but it does bear a remarkable resemblance to this portion of an Incan wall
It could be a naturally formed rock placement but who can say for sure
That cliff is inside a crater, and considering that there aren't any very deep craters on Mars (at least nothing like the Great Canyon), that cliff cannot be that big.

The rock cliff looks like the grand canyon, expanse, not small.
If they are not dead at least they did not move during all those hours, the one with "the arm help up" was photographed on Sol 1364 and 1367, in exactly the same position, this "Egyptian statue was photographed on Sol 1167 and 1167.
The two photos of creatures/ stutes look like reptilians, who says they're dead? Maybe posing for the photo. The one statue has breasts. The one with the arm held up.
Then why did the "statue with the arm held up" did not got buried? And why do we see only "statues", "fossils" and "machine parts" and never things that look like buildings?
Other civilization factors/ artifacts/buildings may be under the sand like Egypt gets covered up.
But not these small "statues"?
Maybe there was a war on mars, buildings were blown up.
Not to me, to me it looks like a natural landscape, marked by several craters, but mostly (at least where the rovers are) it looks like sedimentary rock, something like a lake or sea bottom.
The lanscape screams explosions.
Those can be the result of meteors hitting the surface, no need for artificial destruction.
Sand with rock bits scattered all around from past explosions?
And why consider it a "creative work"? It looks natural and not out of place, in both cases there similar features that do not look like statues or creatures, so they do not attract the attentions of most people, but they are there.
No evidence of other creative work there? Well maybe the artist died. People just do that at random for various reasons unexpectedly.
Maybe what you think is smoke is just fog, with no fire.
We all know ET is real and has been here for thousands of years, too much SMOKE everywhere.
