Is An Enormous Mayan Head Visible In Google Earth?

Perhaps this is only an instance of our tendency to see faces everywhere. But nonetheless, located at coordinates 50° 0’36.67″N 110° 6’51.38″W in the mountains of Alberta, Canada is a geological formation which arguably bears strong resemblance to a Mayan chieftain. One wonders how he feels about recent oil drilling in the area:

    In answer to your question, no.

    And how exactly is Canada related to the Mayas down south?

      exactly. the only thing i can think of- dene peoples are related to the various athapaskan speakers as far south as mexico- but not to mayans, unless someone has a crazy anthropological theory as yet unfounded.

    • Actually, before the introduction of European diseases there was enough people on the North and South American continents to foster travel between the two areas. While there aren’t any real cities north of Mexico before the Europeans get enough of a foothold to develop them (Cahokia was more an accidental gathering that had a quick half-life) there was enough people up north to develop towns, trade and even travel between the north and south.

      How that translates to a massive physical structure that translates to a picture on Google Earth I don’t know – I’m guessing Pareidolia – a need for us to create structure where things may indeed be randomness.

    I saw a similar design in my bathroom floor the other day. Do you think there’s a connection?!

    numberless are the mysteries of the world…mighty uncanny, though if it is artificial it has to be younger than 10,000 years because ye olde Laurentide would have completely destroyed that.

    Definitely pareidolia

  8. Well I never – and there on my Google map the A at those coordinates is labelled ‘Badlands Guardian’ right on the guy’s cheek – must be legit…
