Selected parts of the layer of black stone have been removed to leave the bas relief silhouette of a walking woman. This kind of stone work is seen in other iconic materials from the Arkfeld site.
On very close examination, there may be a faint trace of a simple representation of a child's head protruding from what appears to be a baby sling on a mother's back.
A contemporary example of the mother and child imagery interpreted in this stone.
