A photo of a statue with what looks like a QR code for a face has been making the rounds on social media, with some of the more imaginative people suggesting that it's evidence of ancient aliens. The "ancient aliens" would also have to be time traveling aliens, as QR codes were only invented in 1994. So the most likely explanation is that it's a modern statue. Either an ironic work of art, or some kind of marketing thing - possibly the company identified in the QR code sponsoring an exhibit. I took a few minutes to transcribe the QR code into machine readable format, and then scanned it. The result was rather boring: http://www.altechmexico.com/ Altech Mexico is just an online retailer of electronic and electrical components. So it's likely this statue was just part of some museum exhibit sponsored by them - or possibly the artist simply picked a random QR code to use as an example, perhaps from the back of the Altech catalog laying on their desk: There's been some suggestion that it might be a digital fake, but there's really nothing in the images to suggest it. And note the two images are different, and taken from different distances and angles. The shadow of the head could be interpreted as being too round - but that seems more like an optical illusion with the curve of the large central stone of the necklace continuing the curve.
