Standing human head statue from Arkfeld Site, #44FK731, Clear Brook, Virginia

Human head statue
Arkfeld Site

Based on other examples on this blog human head renderings which are often quite lite on details sometimes have what appear to be manufactured 'nostrils' of the nose as seen in this example recovered by Adam Arkfeld at his site. They seem to be an important detail which I have proposed may be adding a 'symbolic breath of life' and animation to the stone.

View of the sculpture from the opposite side. Note the vein of quartz crystals which probably helped inspire the selection of the raw material here by the sculptor. Other examples of sculptures appear to have an unnatural 'lean' to one side, like this one appears leaning back, to the left.

This is a depiction of the head of a human which was more robust than anatomically modern humans are today. Many examples of sculptures exist with prominent brow ridges and other robust facial features and suggest strongly they were manufactured by a Paleolithic people.

A bust sculpture in flint from the Island of Oleron, France

Henri Valenti find, Island of Oleron, France

Hello from the island of Oleron. Bust of a man of 6/4 cm in flint found on the island. His headdress and beard are well seen in the imagery of prehistoric man.
Best regards

Two human face visages, one looking straight on and a profile as if looking to the right. Note the shared 'eye' element in the two figures.

"View of profile of the bust and limestone mask naturally pierced but undergoes some retouches. On can be observed the absence of the left eye. 6cm / 4cm"
