A microlithic owl figure from a new Kansas portable rock art site (with 2nd bird nested on its left side)

'Owl figure'
Timothy Banninger find, Kansas



There is a small face realized on the owl's face below its left eye. This face figure is worked to expose the two stone inclusions as 'eyes' with added retouch to make a nose and mouth. 


I contend this is the face of a bird at the eye and beak of the owl. It has a fully expressed body of a bird in profile. This is a motif developed in other examples on this blog.
