Here is an amazing area with two mound formations with a complex, linear topography of walls and foundations that sit within the north eastern hemisphere of Mars, known as Nilosyrtis Mensae (labeled A&B in figure 1). This area lies just to the west of Utopia Planitia and if you look at a map of the Northern hemisphere, you would find that this area is also directly aligned with the Cydonia region, in the western hemisphere.

Beginning with the mound formation labeled B in figure 1 notice the structure has a long spinal feature that runs across the center of its complex topography (Figure 2). It branches out into a rake pattern on its south western side that has a network of walls and linear foundations that form an array of compartmentalized regions of ruins and the remains of large courts yards.

Taking a closer look at the upper, north eastern side of its central spin, I direct your attention to the area formed by an arching wall that takes on the shape of a human head showing a bearded portrait with wrapped turban with distinct facial features (Figure 3).

Returning to the full visual impact of the Mound Formation with Linear Complex and looking again at all of its walls and foundations, I noticed that when the entire mound is rotated 60 degrees to the left, the bearded profile appears to be attached to a body that sits on a throne (Figure 6).

Despite the weathering and erosion and the immense age of this ancient formation, not only can we still recognize the box-shaped throne at its base, but we can also identify the contours of a bearded figure that includes a body with legs and feet - which is sitting on a throne.

When this mound formation on Mars that has a sculpted image of a sitting figure, which I have now entitled the Temple of Shamash, is compared to a Mesopotamian tablet showing the Sumerian God, Shamash sitting on a throne, the common aesthetic design shared between these two sculpted images is quite remarkable (Figure 7).

Is this direct evidence of an Anunnaki occupation of Mars?

Moving over to the mound formation labeled A in figure 1, again notice its interior has a complex topography (Figure 10) Its surface has an array of walls and linear foundations that form an array of compartmentalized regions with ruins and smaller mounds that form a profiled face with an arching crest.

Here is a colorized version of the Facial Mound with Arching Crest (Figure 11).
Figure 11 Jaguar with Serpent Headdress
Notice the left facing profile of a jaguar head. There is a eye, muzzle, nose, slightly parted mouth, chin, jaw and a curved ear.
A serpent rises out of its forehead, like a arching crest, facing towards the right. The serpent's body has triangular scales along its back, an eye, nose and a wide open mouth that appears to be eating a small fish.

Here is a beautifully carved ball court Hacha from Vera Cruz Mexico (Figure 12). It depicts a similar motif that strongly resembles the profiled view of a jaguar head with a serpent headdress that appears on Mars.

Not far away from the Jaguar with Serpent Headdress is another serpent formation.
Here is another MRO HiRISE CTX image, G01_018672_2127_XN_32N297W that provides an expansive view of the western area of this geoglyphic complex, just beyond the Jaguar with Serpent Headdress (Labeled A in figure 13). I direct your attention to the serpentine formation, labeled C in figure 13.
