A janiform stone figure from Missouri

'Two faces looking opposite directions'
Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber find, Jasper County, Missouri

Illustration of the defined features of eyes, mouths and chins of the two faces. Found in a context of many similarly ambiguous zoonthropomorphic figures at The Old Route 66 Zoo Site #23JP1222. Dodd hypothesizes some could have been used as puppet-like props for storytelling.
