Denisovan Ancestry in East Eurasian and Native American Populations

A jasper human head figure from The Netherlands with human modifications
Jan van Es collection, Roermond, The Netherlands
The human may be depicted here wearing hair/hat or cap as is seen in many other Lower and Middle Paleolithic stone figures found and documented by Van Es.
Van Es illustrates some of the removals made to sculpt the face
This figure may be in the motif I have described as 'left eye missing with distortion to the left side of the face symbolic of a lion bite to the head.'
