This image shows a portion of the Seth region on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, exhibiting a fractured scarp and a debris field at the foot of the cliff suggesting a progressive process of 'mass-wasting'.

The image was taken by Rosetta's OSIRIS narrow-angle camera.

An annotated version of the image with an indication of the physical scale is available here, as part of a composite image.
