Arkfeld Site mom's garden produces three bird sculptures

'Bird in left profile'

Adam Arkfeld find in his mother's garden on the Arkfeld farm property at Clear Brook, Virginia. The bird head is at left and tail and tail feathering are at far right. Sculpture on limestone plaques like this is common in portable rock art but still unrecognized by American Archaeology. The shape of the stone's profile has been trimmed and the surface sculpted.

Adam's mother does not discriminate against Stone Age bird figures but rather finds them just as suitable as a modern ceramic bird figure for display under her table lamp.
