Is this the spot they want to climb on top of ?

Lots of other "Enigmatic" structures in this image.

Was this one of your requests ?

It is a lovely and unusual land form.
A perspective on size might be helpful,
but I will guess that is in more than a mile.
Does it strike you as sculptured land?
Might be cool in some mirror symmetry on a center splice.
Thanks for posting the hirise image.
There was a lot to look at in there.
I will look again tomorrow with fresher perspective.
One geologic feature caught my eye.

I have been gone all day the last two days, jade hunting,
and saw this post first time last night all wiped out from hiking in tough territory,
which is why I haven't had time to properly respond.

I don't think the anomalous lovely land form is any kind of artificial or enhanced sculptural design.
If this is a proposed "sculptural design", what do you see there depicted?
It is a product of mass wasting geology IMO.
But it certainly has a flowing motion that I can see why it could be interpreted as art and sculptural.

The entire area there appears to be mass wasted, except for one unique spot.
This spot has an unusually smooth surface that is too smooth,
with odd very thin lines that protrude from the surface.
Those might be "inverted river channels" ... a common explanation by Mars scientists,
but I am not convinced of that at all.
This location is unlike anywhere else out there except for an elongated large mound just to the right of it,
{not seen in this image}
that appears to be too smooth as well.

This item is almost dead center,
about 3/4's the way down the Hirise image Keith posted. 
Sorry to bore you all to death with my geologic observations,
but this spot caught my eye as very unusual.
If the rest of the area is "mass wasted",
then this spot survived the mass wasting.

There is no "queens face" there.
Do you believe that to be artificial EA?
That is a geologic anomaly only IMO, it is not a sculpted work of art.
It was many years ago that we addressed that face like feature when George {Zip} promoted it.
Back then it was relegated basically to a figment of his imagination,
which is another way of saying he misinterpreted the geology to his motivated benefit.

In Keith's image I didn't see a face until EA pointed out there was one.
That is why I was wondering what was there in the flowing form highlighted from the Hirise image.
It goes to show how my eye is trained for something completely different,
when scrutinizing Martian territory.
Zip's "queens face" from years ago is pretty but pretty wasn't artificial or sculpted.
Now that I see the face in Keith's image,
this form is even more lovely, and I like it, and I don't think it is sculpted either. 
It is much more appealing than the old queens face image from years ago.
Nonetheless, the facial anomaly motivated me to extract the form from the full image and rotate it slightly,
so as to test some splices of mirror symmetry.
It really puts out some cool replicating symmetries with interesting depth.
There is a large hexagonal replication of a mirror symmetry splice of this form,
just posted in the Mandelbrot thread.
I didn't feel it was appropriate to post it here,
as the original geologic anomaly in the Hirise image is better as an art form visually in free flow.

I'm not sellin' nothing but snake-oil y'all for Free and do NOT Appear on "Ancient Aliens"  lol.

There are suggestions of rectilinear traces in the scene that might need further scrutiny.

Personally I use the Principle of Geometridea...

As opposed to geo-glyphic artwork I trend towards looking for the Geometric Idea behind it.

I just haven't fully looked and over time we can try to find it.

I showed my wife the image and said 'can you see a face' and started pointing out the eye-like and nose-like features when she said 'yes she saw it' and told me to move my finger so she could see the full feature.
Yes it looks like a woman.

That is a great landscape!
Image clarity at 500% starts to get pixelated.
Those two Barchan dunes are beautiful. 
Superb sand dune patterns are scattered about, and the anomalous item or two is seen as well. 
I print screened some spots for later review.

...
Are they sand dunes or petrified sand dunes? Or other?
That central depression or perhaps a collapse zone sets an unusual center for the other dune patterns.

you did a good job of bringing out detail.
I was confused at first ... when you click the color image at the link it goes to a larger B&W image,
that is upside down in position,
to the color image. 
The B&W image shows the entire "enigmatic" feature ... in a better viewing position

I assumed the enigmatic mound was in the color image
and I didn't attempt anything with the B&W image
even though it may have better detail.
Desaturating it somewhat aided it
because magnified it looked like the orange and other colors
seemed blotchy which may have otherwise badly affected any texture increase.

???


On the other hand,
the reds, etc. I didn't like may be actual surface features
and  I messed up......

That "enigmatic mound" they have featured is no doubt the subject of some Mars anomalist's claim.
That landform probably has a fancy name to go along with it in Mars anomaly lingo, 
and was batted around by the Mars enthusiasts prior as artificial,
and certainly catches the eye in that direction of possibilities.
It makes for great mirror and flip image replicating.

The reason I put up that image
is because it is from the Margaritifer area
and the description calls it "enigmatic"
which Bob says is almost never used.

I think it's because the questions raised are too disturbing for the public consumption.

"Intriguing" might be a similarly restricted term,
although more frequently used.

New study points to universal code in our brains for what we find beautiful
[Image: newstudypoin.jpg]Architecture, landscape or art -- sights that we like evoke similar patterns in the DefaultMode Network. Credit: Marilyn Abigail Perkins
It goes to show how my eye is trained for something completely different,

when scrutinizing Martian territory. -Vianova

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to monitor subjects' brain activity as they were shown images of art, architecture or natural landscapes, the team found that in the visual parts of the brain, these different types of images led to very different patterns of activity, even across images all judged by subjects to be aesthetically pleasing.

Not so for other parts of the brain. Within the default mode network, regions of the brain that are typically active during inward contemplation, the images that people reported as aesthetically appealing led to remarkably similar patterns of brain activity across art, buildings and landscapes. This suggests the default mode network, or DMN, may contain a universal code for aesthetic appeal.
"We don't know yet if DMN actually computes this representation," said Edward Vessel of the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics in Germany and leader of the team, which originally launched from New York University. "But it clearly has access to abstract information about whether we find an experience aesthetically appealing or not."

As the DMN is normally silent when a person engages with the outside world,

 it is highly unusual that it contains information about the aesthetic appeal of visual experiences.


She's a "Looker!" alright. Holycowsmile is her name... Margaritifer? 

[Image: PSP_010289_1650_RED-LaReina-RedLadycomp.jpg]

The default mode network is at the center of much of the team's work. Known as the brain's place for self-reflection, mind-wandering and imagination, the DMN, as they discovered, has an important role in how we respond to beauty, selectively engaging with highly moving visual art.
Despite being h
ighly personal, aesthetic experiences can be extremely powerful, even life-changing events.
A better understanding of such experiences may lead to insights that could aid learning and improve individuals' sense of well-being. 

It may also lead to a more coherent understanding about how different types of pleasures interconnect in higher order cortical regions and complex human experiences, according to Gabrielle Starr at Pomona College, one of the study's coauthors.
The researchers anticipate that future research will experiment with other modalities/stimuli such as music or poetry and explore whether DMN responds similarly when we find a song or a poem beautiful.
