Some of the many faces of the Ice Age Arkfeld Site, Clear Brook, Virginia
'Limestone plaquette, human head facing left'
Adam Arkfeld find, Site #44FK731, Clear Brook, Virginia
'Face on rhomboid' a known portable rock art motif
'A smiling figure stone' with two nostrils in its facial detail. Maybe the figure is depicted as 'winking.' Perhaps a figure like this was a child's novelty or toy, a kind of Paleolithic 'Casper the Friendly Ghost' character. Adam Arkfeld describes it as having a purple hue which may be pigment residue.
