More of the 'mammoth with human face on posterior' motif from The Arkfeld Site

'Mammoth right profile with human face depiction on its posterior'
Adam Arkfeld find, The Arkfeld Site, #44FK731
Clear Brook, Virginia

One of many mammoth sculptures from this site. This one could be depicting a mastodon based on the head and body shape. Adam describes the sculpture as smoothed by extensive handling and ocher stained. He detected a human face likeness on what would be the posterior of the mammoth. The mammoth body is seen in right profile with the human face in the lower left corner.
