Human head, bird and standing bull figures from Clear Brook, Virginia
Sculpted 'Human head'
Arkfeld Site, Clear Brook, Virginia, site #44FK731
Adam Arkfeld has identified a bird figure facing left here. Although it may appear to some as a natural rock, this piece has been sculpted on the entire surface visible here. There is also a manufactured 'eye' in correct artistic position. It has acquired a weathered surface with calcite accumulations which attest to its great age. This is a very typical crude Paleolithic bird figure stone.
