Anthropomorphic stem figures from Missouri and Virginia
Anthropomorphic "stem figures" found by Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber at The Old Rout 66 Zoo site, near Joplin, Missouri, #23JP1222.
Dodd has speculated they may have been used as puppets in story telling or child play. All four figures are in profile looking right in this photo.
Anthropomorphic stemmed figures identified by Adam Arkfeld at the Arkfeld site, Clear Brook, Virginia, #44FK732. The two at left seem to invoke the female form.
