A zoomorphic figure with traces of incised lines from The Old Route 66 Zoo, site #23JP1222

Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber find, Jasper County, Missouri

The Old Route 66 Zoo has produced several hundred iconic pieces within a few acres of land along the Old Route 66, including these examples from a February posting.

Some of the main stone removals and incised lines illustrated

A close up of the head of the zoomorph. Stacy Dodd processed his photo using the DStretch rock art photo plug-in to ImageJ to help provide another perspective on the stone. I think Stacy was the first person to apply this software tool to portable rock art a few years back.

To me, this piece looks like a combination of human, bison and mammoth attributes into a fantastic creature.
