Arkfeld site carved limestone bar is demarked by joined lines and includes bird and feline imagery
Adam Arkfeld find, Clear Brook, Virginia, site #44FK732 (click to expand)
This limestone bar was shaped by squaring off and trimming its edges. It evidences 3 or 4 incised lines which are joined to demark the very top part of the stone in this orientation. Adam discovered the carved image of a bird and I discovered a feline head depiction under the bird- as if the bird was sitting on a "lion head egg." "Lion present at birth" is an art motif described earlier on this blog.
