The Crowned Face or what is sometimes referred to as the King Face is located within Libya Montes region of Mars and ever since its discovery, in the summer of 2000 (M02-03051) by fellow Mars researcher Greg Orme, this complex facial monument has received a lot of attention among the anomaly hunting community. Unfortunately it would take a little over ten years of image requests and patiently waiting before NASA would release a new image of this intriguing formation. Well, finally in the summer of 2010 The University of Arizona released a HiRISE image of the formation that confirms all the facial features of this amazing geoglyph.
Note: the original MOC image release of the Crown Face was extensively analyzed in my second book: The Martian Codex: More Reflections from Mars (2009). Also see my 2004 Project Teardrop article "The Crown Face(s)": herotwins.hypermart.net/Crowned/CrownedFace.htm

Although the conjoined half-faces that merge together to form the Crowned Face composite on Mars may appear unconventional, its overall design shares a kinship with the traditions of Modern art. A similar use of conjoined faces was utilized in a series of paintings by Mark Rothko in the early 1940’s.
