Bird-Human in Sandstone

Bird-Human Image - Artifact from Day's Knob Archaeological Site (33GU218)

As is often the case, the bottom of this figure was flattened to let it stand upright.  It appears that the features of the face are natural contours of the rock surface, and the overall form of the figure as well as the wing are artificially carved and ground.  The roughly 45 line separating face and body appears to have been carved with a sharp implement.

 Below:  A miniature of the same image, also with a flattened bottom.
