Several possible portable rock art pieces from western Montana reported along with concentrated icons from a Portland, Oregon, garden
A possible worked human face "mask" from western Montana. Finder Nona A. writes "I found it in Sanders County, Montana. Above the town of Thompson Falls. I also found some other suspected art pieces from the same general area."
Nona has created a web site with more pictures of the suspected art she has identified coming from the concentrated area of her garden.
Another view of the mask. A possible head with face comprises the bas-relief right eye. The left eye is depicted as "missing."
This piece has a similarity to the duck head identified from a West Virginia stream two postings ago.
A worked face icon which resembles the artifact from the prior posting "Rick Prince finds a siltstone pebble..." The artifact here seems to be a depiction of the "one eye open, one eye closed" motif seen throughout Middle-Paleolithic portable rock art.
