This beautiful multi-colored flint piece weighing an estimated several pounds was recognized by Ken Johnston as possibly being an example of a lion head sculpture framing the outline of a human head where the lion and the human share the same "eye" or "eye spot" on the sculpture. This piece was photographed by Roy Miller, arguably the greatest living flintknapper in the world. It was found on his property at Flint Ridge and was offered for sale by Mr. Miller to someone who used the flint material for modern lapidary purposes.
It seems a Paleolithic artist may have recognized the creamy white flint band as a potential "lion Mouth" and worked the overall head shape around it. The human head was then created by removing layers of different colored material in the flint to highlight other natural features of the stone. Unfortunately, it was destroyed before it could be evaluated as a possible art piece. The presence of what appears to be the now-extinct North American lion implies a Paleolithic (Pleistocene) age for the sculpture.
