Human Profile in Hematite

Human to Bird Transformation - Hematite Figure from Day's Knob Archaeological Site

Local hematite, height 22 mm (0.87").

In the leftmost photo, this small figure depicts a human profile facing left.  As the stone is rotated horizontally counterclockwise, the image "morphs" into the classic part-human part-bird creature.  The second photo is at 45 rotation, and the third at 90.  This transformation is depicted in the same manner (but by clockwise rotation) in a quartz sandstone figure (click image below):
