Mark Gafkjen find, Minnesota River valley near Minneapolis
As a rock and mineral collector, Mark has identified numerous portable rock art figures in his locale which cannot be accounted for by natural coincidence. Mark uses a microscope to evaluate rocks for evidence of human modification.

In this view of the stone is a human head where the nose line splits two facets of the stone. Each of the visible facets has one of the face's eyes.
