March 2013 sculpture recovered from site number 23JP1222, Missouri #OR66Z, the "Old Route 66 Zoo," may depict a human head with beetling brow, broad jaws and sloping forehead. It reminds me of an artist's depiction I saw in the news about a year ago of the "Red Deer Cave (China) Hominin" which is thought to have survived until about 15,000 years ago.

Additional postings on this blog regarding the Old Route 66 Zoo site in Missouri may be located using 23JP1222 or ZOO in the search box at the top of the right side panel on this screen.

A possible bird figure is depicted on the forehead of the human-like face. It is facing left and has a "feathered" tail.

This bird imagery is similarly seen on this limestone bird sculpture from Licking County, Ohio.
