Human "tall head" in left profile with neck, shoulder and flaked facial details of nose and chin with carved eye and mouth

Adam Arkfeld find, Clear Brook, Virginia, among many dozen human head sculptures.

The contour of the face line here has been chipped to form and the eye and mouth parts of the stone have been humanly carved.

Side 2 of this plaquette exhibits two anthropomorphic facial profiles Janus-faced, looking right and left.

Props of pipe at mouth and penny at eye to facilitate interpretation of two of the four human head forms in this sculpture.
