Subjectivity in Stone Age art works such as figure stones, engravings, sculptures, effigies and curated manuports. See how images and icons have been realized in portable rock media since the dawn of humanity. Here, archaeologists and art historians are becoming aware of these forsaken artifacts. “And this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in every thing." -in W. Shakespeare, As You Like It, 1599.

Alabama sleeping duck figure has human face mask depiction
Lisa Deason find, Lee County, Alabama, here interpreted as a "sleeping duck" figure. Another sleeping duck figure and a face depiction similar to the one below were featured earlier on this blog.
Lisa identified a human face depiction on this stone. The portion of the figure "above the eyes" is here interpreted as a profile of a mammoth facing left, where the bump of the mammoth's head is the peak of the human forehead. This motif is seen in other examples on this blog.
