A pair of mammoth stone figures from Tennessee

Jason Lamont finds from his portable rock art site at Hardin County, Tennessee

'Human head figure facing left'

'Cobble with breaks made to affect a human head likeness'

Natural forces are typically moving rock material toward roundness in shape. When a stone like this 'cube' is found in a suspected stone artifact context, it should be regarded as a human product, maybe a tool and maybe even a geometric novelty for the maker.

This stone has a human face on it, expressed in bas relief. There are two eyes, a bridge and nose and a donut-shaped mouth.
