Awesome shot George! - Thanks you so much for inviting me on board here. (get it - "on board" - yuk, yuk). I appreciate both the feline and primate representations within this foundational geoglyph. It's a great symbolic tether to the Sphinx references here on Earth as well.

Hi ufoteacher, notice the lines and cracks on the feline side of the Cydonia Face project a compartmentalized design often seen in jade masks produced in Mesoamerica. The composite jade feline mask below demonstrates the puzzle-like aspect of these composite faces.
Notice the crowned forehead, the rectangular-shaped eye sockets, the muzzle, mane, and flailing tongue. These same compartmentalized features are also seen on the feline side of the Cydonia Face.

Yes, I can definitely see what you mean in the comparison. The similarity in structured compartmentalization has a parallel as you are pointing out here. I wonder if the basic foundational structure for these types of masks and faces has an ancient purpose behind it aside from the "calling card" aspect of planetary connections between vast civilizations.
You have created a composite of the right side of this mesa and it's mirror, very misleading. Looking at a really good picture of this mesa, anyone would agree that it is just that, a natural land form. [/img]

Hi gaden. I don't think it is misleading. The feline side of the Face can be seen without mirroring. Are you aware that the Maya produced two-faced human/feline masks - just like the human/feline mask of the Face on Mars?
If had read either of Mr. Haas' books you would have been aware of that.
Gaden, looking at a really good picture of this landform might create a bit more disagreement than you think. The best details we have of this landform come from the Hirise image.
However, the best lighting and viewing angles of the landform may have come from the original Viking image.
We still have no detailed image taken during optimal lighting conditions and from the best angle to demonstrate how it may have been intended to appear to observers at a distance from the landform.
Who knows just how it would look if the landform were imaged at the perfect angle, at the right time of day, with a detailed orbital camera?
After all, shadows are an essential element of any sculptural work of art, but they would be particularly important for any object which was intended to be viewable at an orbital distance.
In fact, shadow placement would be far more important than any details that might be etched into the landscape - as most details would fade from view at such a distance. Furthermore, most surface details would be expected to degrade over time due to natural erosion.
Good evening all. I've just joined up to find out where an image is from that was posted here.. it's the "birds eye" image..
Anyway, Have just seen this thread and wish to share something with you all that may/may not leave you a bit stunned.. It sure has me in its grip and I've been working on this for several months now.
You might have heard of the Chauvet cave art which is 30,000 years old. If not, no biggy, go and have a look, there's plenty of info and several videos on it all..
So, long story short as I can possibly get it..
The face on mars is definitely two images..one humanoid, the other feline... How do I know this and what makes me think I can prove it.. Well, in the Chauvet art there is a set of hidden images that you can only read if you know how to or your society has reached a level of inteligenvce with which to put the pieces together.. I'm pretty sure there's lots more to find in there yet but that's another story..
There is a panel of lions in one section.. in that panel there is half a face.. I discovered this face and decided to mirror it to see the entire face Here it is
So, now you can see a humanoid face.. in other words one half of the mars face as both are mirror images.. This face also has a connection to something Leonardo da Vinci did, but another story..
So now we nee to find the feline section of this face.. which is in its forehead.. turn the image upside down..
and we get to see the feline..
Your thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated..

Hello Chauvet and welcome to The Cydonia Institute's discussion board. I do find your Chauvet cave art of interest, however I'd like to see what the original section of the drawing you used looks like.
not a problem.. It's a request I usually get and am prepared for
Here is the original panel.. The half of the face is on the very far right.. What makes this even more interesting is that the mirror image is done on the exact vertical here is the face section on its own..
I have found that if you think you see something in the cave art, you need to prove it.. which is when you need to look further through the art to find the 'companion' to what you first saw. In other words, there is usually something else that confirms what you're seeing. In this instance we are trying to get the evidence that 'exact vertical' mirroring techniques were used in the creation of the art. We can find this in the same panel as the face and involves the lions. In roughly the middle of the lions faces i found an image (mirrored) that resembles a set of lions guarding a cup/chalice/grail.
So, there we have it, a method of artistry used twice in the same art. I have also found that many of the other images found have a strong link to the ancient Egyptian culture, and others.. One of those 'others' now appears to be ancient Rome too. A lot of symbolism has been passed down over time..a long time.. and are still in use today.
The lions and the chalice above reminded me of a coat of arms, or heraldry which we still use. Then, about a week ago, someone posted an image from a church in Austria.. It is of a Roman relief of two'lions rampant' guarding a chalice.
How similar are they? Very simialr if you ask me.. you'll notice the 'chalice' is almost identicalin both images and that the front feet of the lions are off the ground in both images.. Let's not forget that the cave art is 30,000 years old.. yet how can we see this connection?
here are the two together..
But I also mentioned earlier that the humanoid face may have a connection to da vinci as well.. so how does that work?
Da Vinci is believed to have hidden a lot coded messages into his art work..just as the cave appears to have done.. In one piece of work (can't remeber which) da Vinci created half of an image.. when mirrored it gives us a rather unusual face that many have likened to Darth Vader, but it is appraently an image of the first god, javeh.. Here is that mirrored image next to the mirrored image of the face from the cave.. did da Vinci know something that was being kept secret?
