Lion head sculpture from Site #23JP1222

'Lion head' element of the sculpture
Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber find, Jasper County, Missouri
The Old Route 66 Zoo, Site #23JP1222

In a known Paleolithic motif, the lion head facing right may be joined with another animal head which is facing left. This other animal may be an attempt at a 'horse.' Alternately, it may represent the haunches of the lion in a raised pre-pounce position.
