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.'
