As shown in the two
photos immediately below, this limestone figure - 33 cm (13")
- was found lying horizontally in front of a sandstone wall in an
elongated pit on the east side of the hill, in which many
artifacts of varying lithic compositions have appeared. The
initial thought was "Well, another nice bird stone..."
(which it is), and it was just left in place. But a few
months later, it was noted that this stands very nicely upright,
presenting a different and beautiful image, even if badly
weathered - seemingly a female figure from whose body several more
or less anthropomorphic images
emerge. Since it was lying on
top of earth deposited over many years, it is conjectured that at
some point in time it fell from the sandstone wall above it.
