Arkfeld Site sculpture in often repeating motif of "mammoth figure incorporating human head at posterior"

'Mammoth and human combination sculpture'
Adam Arkfeld find, Clear Brook, Virginia

Mammoth body profile facing left. Illustration of the 'mammoth eye' and the human facial elements which have been carved into the back of the mammoth. The sculpture stands upright in correct orientation on a flat base.

This motif of "mammoth with human face at posterior" has been identified in several sculptures from this site and described from other sites in postings on this blog.
