Similar iconic pattern identified by Heather Welk at Denver, Colorado

Example at far right compares to Arkansas example pictured below

The form and techniques used to modify this stone from Arkansas were recently compared to early human examples (Acheulean, Homo erectus) by Jan van Es of Roermond, Netherlands. It compares to the example at right in the photo above this one.

This is a straight on view of the artifact pictured in the center of the above photo with isolated focus on the facial image composed of two "eyes" and a "mouth."

"Totemistic face" interpretation, archaic Acheulean, Jan van Es find at Beegden, Netherlands

A rock with a human face image Heather Welk identified in the context of the Denver "shout" stones. It looks like a bearded man.
