of Zoo-anthropomorphic Face Images
|Shown below are just a
few of the probably thousands of quasi-human shaman-like face images that
appear on lithic and other artifact material at the Day's Knob site. (Some
photos are reversed to point them all in the same direction.) The usually
dis- tinct carving of the eye and mouth with appropriate placement,
and (in many cases) an at least abstractly bird-like crest over the
so frequently and consistently that the probability of coincidence is
extremely small. Some of these images are
skillfully carved and quickly recognized; most are more casual, but the
arrangement of the components is the same. Once aware of it,
anyone can see the figure and its

More such photos will be added to this page as time permits, but images
like these appear on many of the artifacts shown on this website.
