'Right eye open, left eye missing' carved stone head from Woodbridge, Virginia

'Right eye open, left eye missing' is a known Paleolithic rock art motif

Mr. Woodson surface find on his property. This was found in Woodbridge VA in the lake ridge area of the county Prince William. Crude stone tools indicate an area Willie hopes to excavate on a controlled grid in the Spring. Mr. Woodson identified the motif before contacting me.

Detailed carving work to express the right eye in its socket. The left eye is a simple removal of a chip of stone to create a slight indentation. About 50% of the surface of this face has been carved by the artist. There is a gash which appears to serve as a chin cleft on the face.
