This picture was taken by Left Navcam B on 533. As you can see, it is a different time of day, but the rock in question can be seen quite clearly in the middle left area of the image. The different sun angle here throws more light on the 'face'. While it is most definitely an interesting formation, it looks far less like a carved statue without the high contrast shadows in the other pictures.

However, I am still not convinced that this rock formation, and the others near it are not worth closer inspection. The 'column' formation behind the 'face' seems to have even greater detail in this sun angle then the other.

Maybe this risky 'jumping the dune' is to get a better look?



nice catch ... still looks like a face even there though

I suppose by now (119 posts) that someone has mentioned what looks to be the partial corner of a pedestal directly behind the head? Any other parts of around? Really puffy eye bags on the guy in the sand, right?

These symbols?

Interesting...hard to see, but is this the area you were referring to?


Looks to me like the lid of a sarcophagus that has broken and the contents have fallen out, including this statue. There are other "rocks" that look like they could have been part of it as well.

After looking at this image from numerous angles on my laptop. There does seem to be
symbols/hyros on this rock and similiar ones found in Egypt and other places.
Even those reported on spacecraft. eg the binary code guy.
I am a mega sceptic when it comes to rocks posts but this ones got me
in a corner!
Are we being spoon fed like a child to break us in easy!


can you please post the pic of the simbols? I don't know where to look for them. Thx!

Awesome thread by the way!
I'm usually a lurker but this brought me out !

As promised, some of my finds from this image (there's more...this image is a goldmine).

Head number 2, with ornate headdress (Note the circle at the apex of the headdress, with an equal cross inside it..very similar to Ancient Egyptian symbols of a similar design).

The head has two eyes squinting, a nose and a wide open, gaping mouth (as if being sick, wretching)...it appears to have another creature coming from its mouth), also in this crop is the rock with the pipe coming from it (already posted by some other sharp eyed member) This is found a little way down and left from the OP's head.



Next is another (possible) stone head, found along the center-left side of the image (not too far from the 'rusty fallen column')

The head is viewed as laying on its right side, orientation is top of head is upper, beard is lower. Note the ear, two eyes and grimacing expression. Not cropped is what could have been a headdress or helmet for this statue (just to the right of the head, not pictured here)



Here is a really surprising find...a real wow one.

It looks to be a ceramic, and PAINTED ceramic sculpture half buried and just at the base of what i'm calling the 'fallen rusty column with metalic strips and equal spaced bolts/fittings'...this was instantly recognised by me as 'Nefertiti'...the most beautiful woman of ancient Egypt (or so she was known).

Here's a bust of her, actually from Egypt;



Note the headdress design, the angle of the neck and the red lips..now, here's what i found near the column;



Apart from what looks like a chinstrap for the headdres, it looks almost a perfect copy of the bust of Nefertiti, the headdress is there, the skin tone is there, the shape and angle of the neck is also there...it even has the red lips!..for a rock, even allowing for pareidolia, you have to admit that is very bloody odd!

What else...oh yes, the rusty, demolished, fallen column remains...look closely at the bottom edge and you'll see 'Nefertitis head';



Look along and follow the large crack up to the top, and look carefully. You'll see several lateral strips (i count four) of metal, ending and broken at the crack. Look along the top edge and you'll see very odd and regularly spaced 'bolts' or fixings, there are also a few spaced out along the vertical side too.

Is this pareidolia? Really?

OK, there's more...here's what i'm calling the huge metallic (but very broken) head statue...it is laying on what i see as it's left side of its face, the forehead is ripped open and the headdress has broken off to its left (right side of the head as you look at it) The eye that is visible, is closed. It looks to be a silvery metal, not corroded.

Look to the very center of the cropped image and see the closed eye and ripped open forehead.



Yes, some will naturally say pareidolia and for good reason...it is actually a very real psychological phenomena..however, its purpose is evolutionary, it once aided us to recognise hidden predators and prey, by seeing what may be trying to hide from us or stalk us.

Pareidolia cannot explain perfect right-angled pipes...and there are perfect right angled pipes emerging from the remains of the 'rusty column object' and elsewhere...here are just two of them, unmistakable as pipes and perfect right angles.



This cannot be pareidolia...a perfect right angle forming a perfectly symmetrical 'L' right in the middle of the cropped image. The dark object to its right looks quite odd too, but either way the pipe is there and has a perfect 90 degree bend.

It is also along the left side of the main image.

Ready for another perfect 90 degree, right angled pipe, this time emerging from a section of the 'rusty column'?



These pipes are not optical illusions and cannot be explained away as such, they cannot be anything other than actually there..pareidolia is meant to recognise prey or predators...not pipes.

There is plenty more in this single image to find.

Here ya go! A: is where I think the symbols are(hard to see) it almost looks like a rounded border around the symbols as well...the second picture posted @ a different angle you can see more of what I think looks like symbols B: Looks to be a head of a pillar(although it could be just a rock) C: Face 1 D: Face 2

Sorry for my crude paint skills....

Here it is, but too small of a pic. It is shown to be at least three rocks.


edit on 6-2-2014 by Aleister because: (no reason given)


It still looks pretty much like a single rock to me, no matter. Given the dune was stated somewhere to be 3ft, but dominates the foreground, much of the rocks, including the face must still be quite small.

The OP pic, that one is interesting. most of the other ones ive seen posted dont look like much other than mars rocks and a little imagination.

Look along and follow the large crack up to the top, and look carefully. You'll see several lateral strips (i count four) of metal, ending and broken at the crack.



They look like pieces of shale rock to me, they often look very symmetrical. There are bigger pieces over the extreme left-hand side of the panorama, they look like pavement stones.

Thanks, i agree with you, but really i'd rather see them find even more evidence to back it up.


I'm not interested in fighting, nothing ever gets done properly when we're all arguing about this or that.

I'd really like the naysayers (often justified i'll add) to search this image very closely and be totally honest about what they see rather than anything else.

No, i don't mean the thin lines along the very left hand edge of the main object at the center...is that what you were talking about smurfy?

I mean't actually inside the crack, in the top surface of the thing.

There are definitely four (maybe five) strips that are more or less evenly spaced and have broken ends (actually inside the top edge crack) with what looks like holes near the breaks and an even thickness to each strip.

Here are a few more (slightly) different angles







I also want to say, the fact that there appears to be TWO potentially similar man-made (loose term) objects is what lends to my personal interest in this phenomenon. I feel like all the conjecture about the 4-pixel-wide rocks is a little bit of a stretch.

That's the piece of rock I called a 'Dowel' for the purpose of this thread. There is an explanation given by NASA and concerns the 'blueberries' that abound on Mars, the round balls seen in many pictures deemed to be hematite. The balls can be seen embedded in rock as well as lying around on the ground. What is the most likely explanation is that this is a piece of rock that contained a hematite concretion, or may still, while the outer layering of the rock has eroded away leaving something that looks like a tube.
If you look at other rocks in NASA pictures, you will see similar, but also rocks still intact but full of holes. So you could say rocks with holes, eroded rock that looks like a tube, then blueberries with the rock completely eroded. Millions of years of work..and all those surface rocks are pretty much bone dry and brittle, Mars is not like Earth, it can't be.

As I peruse the big, high pixel pics I am seeing more and more pseudo artificiality. The jumble to the far left on the big pic has right angles and what looks like paint remnants and architectural details on pieces of a smashed wall.

And the clump of rock above and to the left of the main 'head' looks like a chunck of tan adobe brick wall with a graphite colored, treated, smooth facing on one side.

But it's still rocks... literally. And it's probably not artificial either, but it has many right angles and straight lines... so I can see why the raised eyebrows over this area. By gosh, one could almost see paint on some pieces, but I think it's a blue, tan and cream strata that is broken off the crater wall and perfectly natural... though definitely fun to look at... and it's another planet! Millions of miles away! And even if it's not a smashed temple, it is still cool as heck.
