Date of discovery: Oct 7, 2012
Location of discovery: Mars
I found this face (side view looking left) in not just one photo, but nine taken by the Mars Rover Opportunity. It really looks like an ancient Egyptian face with the elongated back. Its very similar to King Tuts golden sarcophagus. Even the beard coming down with a bend on its end is there.
Part of me is thinking this face is not a statue buried to the shoulders but instead is a headstone for someone buried there. A headstone with the face of the person that died, weathered by hundreds of thousands of years of blowing sand. SCW
