ALIEN hunters believe they have discovered a statue of a Martian warrior in NASA images from the Red Planet, which supposedly proves the existence of life on Mars.
UFO enthusiasts believe they have spotted a mountain carving – similar to that of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota – in the cliffs of Mars. The figure appears to be human-like with an elongated head, which some self proclaimed alien experts believe is the typical characteristics of a Martian. One alien hunter believes this is proof of life on Mars, and that intelligent aliens also hold high-standing members of civilisation in high regards.
Prominent conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring spotted the supposed statue in NASA images, and believes this is the elusive proof that intelligent life once existed on the Red Planet.
Mr Waring explained on his blog ET Database: “I found this figure in a hillside on Mars in the latest NASA rover photo.
“The figure could be male or female, because often on Earth ancient warrior chest armor of warriors often has an enhance chest area to make them look more muscular in battle and put fear into the enemy.
“The tall hat looks to be part of the armour and could be filled 30 percent with the person’s head. Some aliens have an enlarged or elongated cranium compared to humans.
“It’s placed on the side of a hill and reminds me of the time I lived near Mount Rushmore and saw the presidents faces on the side of the mountain.
“It’s a typical thing to do for intelligent species, because being proud of certain individuals in your culture and carving them into stone makes them last forever. Their memory will last forever as we see her today.”
However, sceptics and NASA would say the statues and other similar findings are just the effects of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon when the brain tricks the eyes into seeing familiar objects or shapes in patterns or textures such as a rock surface.
Another recent finding which supposedly supports the argument of life on Mars was that of a supposed statue of a Martian god.
The apparent statue is found enclosed between the bottom of two Martian cliffs, with Mr Waring claiming it is made out of copper or a “golden metal”.
He wrote on his blog ET Database: “While looking over some Mars photos, I came across a strange figure hidden in the lower part of a hillside.
“The figure looks like its made of a copper or golden metal.
“I know this because the colour is very different from the colour of its surroundings.

“This was probably a god, a statue of a god that the people on Mars prayed to for protection.
“The statue itself has a head, a thick chest with a long robe covering it, a large book or shield on one arm.
“Very amazing discovery and absolute proof that ancient intelligent aliens not only lived on Mars, but prayed on Mars.”
