The Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, carry on board an abrasion tool for scraping away the outer layers of rock so that the rock can be more closely examined. Some of the images were quite unusual and equally beautiful. This is an abstract/representational piece of the many images sent back.
