A bison figure from The Old Route 66 Zoo Site, Jasper County, Missouri

A bison figure from The Old Route 66 Zoo Site, 23JP1222, Jasper County, Missouri. Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber find. 20x15cm

Please note the detail of the bison face includes a clear right eye. The face seems to have a mixture of of bison and human qualities

Prof. Walther Matthes, a German archaeologist, identified many stone figures around 1960 which were associated with Mousterian stone technology tools. This Missouri figure corresponds somewhat favorably to the presumed Neanderthal one.

  1. I have found in Virginia a bison/buffalo that is very similar. This is the closest I have seen to mine. My rock art sculpture is 105 lbs. On it are also several other animal forms. Mammoth lion bear owl horse and bison. Alan
