Sleeping bird figure and human face profile on petrified palmwood from Colorado
Chris Schram find, near Big Dry Creek, Westminster, Colorado
Chris interprets a cartoonish anthropomorphic face profile looking left with an exaggerated long face and nose. The mouth is marked red to orient this figure. A black line is added here to show the subtle definition in the rock work which is used to delineate a bird head also looking left, where the human and bird figures share the same "eye."
