Ok, if I had the money to travel to that country (or to the 'face' on Mars which the following can apply to also), I would take a series of
orthographic shots and a series of shots from random angles at periodic times of the day - and guess what I'd find? That it wouldn't resemble a face
at all. However, the reason for the settlement of the people there could be attributed to the face and the attention it gets. If anybody could figure
out what time of day it is when this optical illusion is visible, please share it with us, as it could be related to the religious beliefs of the
native peoples. Maybe they decided to settle there becase they thought it was the face of a god or God. Or maybe they just thought it be cool to say
to another city, "Hey, we have a rock that looks like *insert a god's or God's name here* in our backyard. What do you have?"
They seem to be pretty smart, but I don't think they could grasp the idea of optical illusions, like we learned, advanced people can.
