Badlands Guardian Face in Canada

Badlands Guardian face in Canada is also known as “Indian Head” is a geomorphological feature located near Medicine Hat in the south east corner of Alberta.
Viewed from the air, the feature bears a strong resemblance to a human head wearing a full Aboriginal Canadian headdress, facing directly westward. Because of additional man-made structures, it also appears to be wearing earphones.

The apparent earphones are a road and an oil well, which were installed recently and are expected to disappear once the project is abandoned.

It looks disconcertingly like a face from above, but this formation in Alberta, Canada, is entirely natural. Dubbed the Badlands Guardian, the “face” is actually a valley eroded into the clay.

Head is a drainage feature created through erosion of soft, clay-rich soil by the action of wind and water.
The arid badlands are typified by infrequent but intense rain-showers, sparse vegetation and soft sediments. The ‘head‘ may have been created during a short period of fast erosion immediately following intense rainfall.
Although the image appears to be a convex feature, it is actually concave — that is, a valley, which is formed by erosion on a stratum of clay, is an instance of the Hollow-Face illusion and it’s age is estimated to be the in hundreds of years at a minimum.

It has a screen name ‘Super Granny‘ on Google Earth.
This face is pretty uncanny and vastly superior to that alledged “face on mars”.

Cydonia (region of Face on Mars)

Cydonia is a region on the planet Mars that has attracted everyone.
It was first imaged in detail by the Viking 1 and Viking 2 orbiters. Eighteen images of the Cydonia region were taken by the orbiters, of which seven have resolutions better than 250 m/pixel (820 ft/pixel). The other eleven images have resolutions that are worse than 550 m/pixel (1800 ft/pixel) and are of limited use for studying surface features. Of the seven good images, the lighting and time at which two pairs of images were taken are so close as to reduce the number to five distinct images.

By combining data from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on the Mars Express probe and the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) on board NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor it has been possible to create a three-dimensional representation of the “Face on Mars“.
