Bison head and human head or skull combination from the Arkfeld site, Clear Brook, Virginia
Adam Arkfeld find, Clear Brook, Virginia, site #44FK731
Interpreted by Ken Johnston as a bison head and neck facing right combined with a human head on top which is facing skyward
An illustration of the human and bison forms in this sculpture. The channel above the bison eye is a symbolic horn line which may be continued upward a bit as seen in the illustration. The human face has two nostril divots which is seen in so many other portable rock art figures and may be considered as adding the "breath of life" to the stone object.
Rotating the bison neck and head image 90 degrees to the left orients a human head facing left on the left end of the stone. The top of the human's head is defined by the bison image horn crevice.
