Portable Rock Art Human and Ape Face Profile impressions

Another portable rock art find of mine from my site, this time with a human head profile likeness and an ape face profile likeness. The human head impression has no textural detail but has some possible iron oxide (red ocher) staining, so maybe the impression was painted, the paint being long gone and a chemical reaction has caused the image to persist?
