White Flint Elephant Head with Crystal Inclusion

Another highly complex flint find from my site, showing numerous animal head profiles, elephant, bear, ape, and even a whole image of a suspected rodent, which could be the long extinct kimbetopsalis simmonsea.

Flint Elephant Head Effigies

Two more worked flint effigies from my site, both showing simple elephant head impressions facing right. As always the stones have much more figurative content, the minimum age of these artworks, according to the fossil record and climate conditions is 100,000 years old.

Below, three more flint sculptures showing elephant head impressions, all from my site:

Many more elephant impressions can be found on older posts on this blog and Omniglyphs Blog.

Flint Blade Tool with Centralized Fossil Sea Shell

Another blade tool from my site, as always face profiles are numerous in my materials. Suspected hominid side on views and a subtle elephant impressionist artwork. The fossil sea shell is perfectly centralized, which I have identified as a possible Diodora shell (Keyhole Limpet) Late Cretaceous till recent. This is not my only tool find with a fossil inclusion, this Mesolithic pick has a suspected rare Spriggina fossil of the Pre-Cambrian period 550MYA+.

Standing Flint Blade with Subtle Iconography.

Two standing alignments in this prehistoric flint blade tool. The suspected iconography is subtle but numerous. As always ape like face profiles are present and no doubt those used to reading my materials will see other glyphs too. Red ocher etchings cover the stone, but artistic or symbolic usage here is unclear, they could be little stick men.

Orca and Elephant flint multi-tool

A simple Orca likeness can be seen heading both left and right, elephant and front leg, and a subtle bear or feline on the orca's tip. I would also suggest thumb and nail iconography. The flint is very sharp in places and would most likely have a very specialized use.

Translucent Flint Blade Tool with Birds and Bears

Many face profiles can be seen in this lithic implement, ape or hominid like faces being the most likely suspects generally. Both a left facing and right facing bear head glyph can be seen along with some subtle bird likenesses.

Lithic Topology

Some very straight forward shape and or petroglyph content comparisons, of finds from my site.
My old favorite elephant and front leg is here plenty, I will leave it at that for suspected iconic creature content, enjoy ;-)

3 of the 4 here are blade tools as well as poly iconic.

Elephant and Diplodocus?

According to that popular thing known as science, the Elephant and the Diplodocus should never have met, there is at least 15 Million years separating the two in the fossil record.

More flint tools with ape petroglyphs and more...

These two stone age tool finds are from an unknown period but have a similar cortex grip feature. Ape like face profiles are present just like nearly all my other figurative finds, more can be found too! just pick a likely looking eye feature, and run with it ;-)

Mesolithic Flint Tool?

Portable Rock Art
Mesolithic Art 
This worked flint find of mine, was found alongside stone tools described by the Museums Services as 'Mesolithic' back in 2005.  Some face profiles can be seen, including a suspected ape impression, bird and wolf. Of coarse there is no record of an ape population living in the UK in the Mesolithic period. The beak of the bird head profile is a translucent inclusion in the flint itself, apologies  for not getting this alignment quite right, with some adjustment I believe more profile's will be revealed.
