I, too, am less than convinced by the Mars pseudo-science out there...
however... reading Brandenberg's Death on Mars raises some valid scientific points in favor of an ancient civilization there... but at the least, the evidence exists that points to manufactured fission-fusion bombs as the only known explanation for the Martian distribution of certain isotopes only seen on Earth from man-made atomic explosions. He hypothesizes that two massive atomic air-bursts occurred there a few hundred million years ago (in addition to an asteroid strike).
With that in mind, some of the "anomalies" sure could be very ancient constructions... and the source of the atomic bombs may have been ancient humans, hostile xenophobic aliens, or Martians ... all possibilities are disconcerting... and weird.
So I'm not convinced of anything, but the science is indeed sound and points to ancient fission-fusion bombs because we lack knowledge of what other natural process could produce those particular xenon particles and distribute them in the manner seen... and Brandenberg is enough of a scientist to admit it's just a theory... BUT the evidence is there.
And that is very, very thought provoking.
edit to add: and the evenly spaced stones (or something) placed around the face and found by a member some years ago needs explanation, too. That was hard to see as natural.
ETA 2: Oh and the 1947 artist's face is quite the coincidence (to veer back to topic) but thinking about what large construction to make so a passer by in space sees it, makes a face an obvious choice
I don't really know what to think about this particular piece, but the coincidence of it is magnitudes beyond anything I have seen....even the landscape around it.the very fact he named it "to be viewed from mars" back in 1947, is an astronomical coincidence I think. This artist was way beyond his years.
John Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum (March 25, 1867 – March 6, 1941) was a Danish-American artist and sculptor famous for creating the monumental presidents' heads at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota; the famous carving on Stone Mountain near Atlanta; and other public works of art, including a head of Abraham Lincoln, exhibited in Theodore Roosevelt's White House and held in the United States Capitol Crypt in Washington, D.C..
Borglum was an active member of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons (the Freemasons), raised in Howard Lodge #35, New York City, on June 10, 1904, and serving as its Worshipful Master 1910-11. In 1915, he was appointed Grand Representative of the Grand Lodge of Denmark near the Grand Lodge of New York. He received his Scottish Rite Degrees in the New York City Consistory on October 25, 1907.
When the First World War broke out in Europe, Rumely was pro-German and outraged by the pro-British slant of most American newspapers. Thus, in 1915, Rumely bought and became editor-in-chief and publisher of the New York Evening Mail. Since he was a good friend of Theodore Roosevelt, he permitted him to use the newspaper as his mouthpiece. Roosevelt contributed one, and possibly many more, editorials on the subject of the development of the American merchant marine.
In 1918, Noguchi was sent back to the U.S. for schooling in Rolling Prairie, Indiana. After graduation, he left with Dr. Edward Rumely to LaPorte, where he found boarding with a Swedenborgian pastor, Samuel Mack. Noguchi began attending La Porte High School, graduating in 1922. During this period of his life, he was known by the name "Sam Gilmour.
