I don't know if this was discussed somewhere before.

So I recently rewatched Alien: covenant and at some point in the film I noticed some detail thats shown for a short period of time.

After the xenomorph is killed by a crane, we see our main heroes in a lander leaving the Engineer city and it passes by something what appears to be a very large stone face of an Engineer.

Screenshots:

Kinda reminds me of Mount Rushmore

I can't wait for the film to come out on blu-ray so we get a better view, and might discover other details.

Wow! Good catch! Do you think it's a carving of someone who's considered historically important to the Engineers? Maybe a famous scientist?

 

Or maybe one of those...sacrifice Engineers, like the dude who sacrificed himself to seed life on Earth?? Maybe it's a statue of the guy who seeded life on Paradise!

Cool! ... I wonder if the engineers know who created them...

Thank you very much.

To me it looks like the face of the elder, like the ones from the hall of heads inside the engineer citadel.

Who knows.

And the crashed Scorpion Mothership can be seen in the background in the first still as well... :)

Slightly better shot.

Seems to be two heads in the mountain.

Maybe some military guy or like you said, one of the Elders, anyway may I ask how you took the screenshots, asking for a friend ;)

It seems odd to have just ONE such Person in that Rock-Face, its a case of does this show case the Engineer/Elder Race in General?  or its it attributed to ONE Specific being of great Importance?

some Shots it looks like MIKE TYSON to me lol David better not want to meet this person, not if he wants his Ears intact.

There is an hdrip on many pirate sites now. It's like bad 720p quality idk how that stuff works but it's already in the wild. I imagine it could have come from a free stream. I noticed that statue too and it looks like the mount Rushmore analogy to me but surely it's something deeper. I don't see the scorpio naught unless it's that blip below the ship. Several questions to ponder about AC

There's already a topic about the crashed scorpion ship.

@TheXenoneoprotomorph Somewhere illegal.

And thanks to AdamPD, looks like theres more than one stone face in the mountain.

Some interesting info regarding stone faces.
