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.
