– Experts and conspiracy theorists now argue is it a living alien woman or just a statue from long time ago

The original NASA photo (see below) in which the anomaly hunters spotted the lone figure may be viewed here on the NASA JPL website. The viewer can zoom in on the image on the NASA website for a closer view of the “strange woman walking on Mars.”
The photo appears to a show a ghostly woman standing on a rock formation observing Curiosity rover. She appears to be wearing a flowing dress. Her head and two arms are distinctly visible.
UFO Sightings Daily editor Scott Waring, notes that the woman appears to be bare-chested:
“It looks like a woman partly cloaked. The woman seems to have breasts… indicated by the shadow on its chest. We also see two arms that are lighter in color and what looks like a head with long hair.”
Some viewers noted that the style of her dress is reminiscent of the fashion style of ancient Minoan women. Some people also thinks the image could be a highly eroded ancient statue, but thinks it unlikely: “It’s hard to tell if this is a living being, or a statue of a being from long ago. However, a statue that small would be eroded and destroyed easily, so it has a higher chance of being a living being. Also it is facing the Mars rover… watching it from a distance.”
Guy Webster, who handles media requests related to Mars exploration, told CNET: “It's really easy to pick out rocks or other things that look like something else in pictures like this.”
