Two companion Tennessee stone faces, one with a mouth full of 'teeth'
Jason Lamont finds, Hardin County, Tennessee, along the Tennessee River
Box highlights lips and mouth full of teeth. This very same kind of 'tooth detail' is also seen on sculptures from The Old Route 66 Zoo in Missouri and helps confirm this, and likely the companion find, are manufactured stone faces produced within a Stone Age cultural framework.
The darker companion stone exhibits an exaggerated and elongated chin as is again seen on examples from the Missouri site which implies a Stone Age cultural connection between these sites, separated by 375 miles.
