    The legs are not separate. It doesn't look like a walking being, unless it's a Mars Woman instead, and is wearing a skirt. I would like to know, however, how such a rock could be formed naturally. The arm doesn't look natural for a rock. I could more easily expect rocks of strange shapes in places where there is water.

    Martian atmosphere is thin, but there are winds that carry sand, which can erode the rocks.
