Mr. Solis states "This is a comparison of two effigies that have a similar appearance. The photo on the right shows an effigy with three images. On the right side you will see what I think is a female. On the left side you will see the male in profile. As I took the picture, I found another image I hadn't noticed before. Perhaps it was too small to catch, but zoomed in, you can see the small mouth of what appears to be a baby or child (you can clearly see the mouth in the highlighted area." Mr. Solis arrived at his conclusion about two-headed figures without knowledge they had been described in portable rock art writings describing possible "old world" motifs.
Gaietto's web site includes this information: "Sculptures of lower and middle Paleolithic are eight types:
1) human head
2) animal head
3) human head two-faced (bold added here for emphasis)
4) animal head two-faced
5) human head joined for the neck at the head of animal
6) human head mixed to animal head
7) naked woman (Venus)
8) head of animal with human body.
The oldest type of sculpture is the human two-faced head, with absolute dating of three million years; it was produced in southern Africa by a kind of Australopithecus, a hominid preceding man.
It is important to consider that the human two-faced head is not imitation of nature, as it did not exist, but is an invention of the spiritual culture of humanity. All these eight types of sculptures appear in Lower Paleolithic and are all linked to the cult, that is to religion." - Pietro Gaeitto, Italy, Museum of the origins of man.
