Austin, Texas, lion head figure stone
Lion head profile looking left, found by David Boies, near Austin, Texas
(Left) A possible lion head sculpture from the Arkfeld site, Clear Brook, Virginia, faces the Austin, Texas, figure. Even though they are facing opposite directions, these two lion heads are made on somewhat the same visual template, likely being a culturally-guided tradition. The Texas figure at right has a prominent chin at the 16.5cm mark.
