Strange 'figure' spotted by Mars Curiosity Rover

The truth is out there … maybe. A mysterious woman-like shape in a picture taken by NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover is creating buzz on social media.
In a post entitled "Alien Woman on Mars Watching Rover From Hill" the UFO Sightings Daily website said that the shape "looks like a woman partly cloaked."
Mashable is somewhat more circumspect in its analysis of the image. "Perhaps it's a cloaked ghost Martian woman, perhaps it's a statue left over from a once great society, perhaps it's a piece of dirt," it said. (For the record, we agree with the "piece of dirt" assessment).
What do you think? Here's a link to the image, which was posted by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
