A flaked sculpture from The Old Route 66 Zoo depicts a human face with a prominent brow ridge

'Human face sculpture with prominent brow ridge'
Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber find, The Old Route 66 Zoo, Jasper County, Missouri. Site #23JP1222

The facial expression and the life-like detail of the 'lips' indicate this sculpture's maker had a combination of artistic talent and highly developed stone working skill.

One of the last Tasmanian aboriginals photographed holding large rhomboid with repeating rhomboid pattern on its surface. This may be seen as a human phenotype which has resulted from isolation, perhaps of a more archaic human such as Homo heidelbergensis.
