I know this thread has been up a while, but I just stumbled upon it tonight and actually had a few things that came to mind.
1. To me, the statue looks unfinished. Along with looking Egyptian, this makes a lot of sense, because the builders in ancient Egypt would abandon
works in stone if the stone became cracked or otherwise damaged during the carving process. Completely abandon and not even try to salvage the piece,
which looks like could easily have happened here.
2. The fact that it does appear very similar to Egyptian works is also very interesting because of speculation that the original "Face on Mars" has
characteristics of the Sphinx, even so much as appearing to be wearing a headdress with the same stripe patterns.
3. Researchers are beginning to seriously start looking into the correlation of different pyramid structures in various ancient civilizations, and
coming up with some very interesting facts, particularly the association with astronomy. I have read that the "pyramids" on Mars (located near the
face) also have a specific link with astronomy.
Now, I'm not saying that this is conclusive proof, but I also tend to think that the simplest answer is usually correct and honestly, to me
personally, it's more a stretch to say that these things are random. Besides we just now discovering that these ancient structures on our own planet
have ties to space and the stars, that would have been impossible to know about when they were built, or at least they would be with the technology
that we believe they had. (or lack thereof)
