The Cydonian Imperative

Analysis Suggests Natural Origin for "Crowned Face"
by Mac Tonnies



New SFS renderings cast doubt on an artificial interpretation of
the 'Crowned Face'.

New shape-from-shading images by Greg Orme show the so-called
'Crowned Face' under a variety of lighting conditions, revealing
it to be a natural-looking feature. The following quote is from
Page 18 of The Cydonian Imperative, which contains additional
commentary on this controversial feature:

"There is an overall impression of bisymmetry and facial detail
that, although fascinating, seems to be largely superficial.
Unlike the Cydonia face (to use a much-studied example) the
Crowned Face does not appear in isolation, but rather as a
series of natural-looking ripples. One such 'ripple,' I suggest,
is the feature construed as a 'mouth.' The fact that the Crowned
Face is a very shallow feature, with no prominent shadows (as
might be expected from a carving intended to stand the test of
time) makes testing for artificiality exceptionally difficult."
