James B. Harrod, Ph. D. has documented the one eye open, one eye closed motif from multiple Paleolithic old world archaeological sites. Please see links to Mr. Harrod's articles and web site originsnet.org on the right side bar.
Harrod has written: "One day I had the opportunity to hand the 'one eye' sculpture that Ursel sent me to the late Roy Scheider, a skilled actor in TV, movies and Shakespearean stage. I said nothing other than: "what do you feel this stone is saying". He said (paraphrase) that it felt like the tragic vision of King Lear, one eye open is witness to all human doings and human suffering, one eye is closed in pain and and anguish over the human condition; also one eye looks inward, one outward. Also as the head is like that of a child, it also speaks of maintaining spiritual innocence facing the human predicament. I am reminded of the proverb of Jesus: 'Be wise as serpents, innocent as doves'."
