Two Faced - Figure Stone

This figure stone from my find site has flake removal scars in many places, the most interesting of which is the inverse tetrahedron that makes up the eye feature, also shown in the previous post. Some kind of pigment was also used to enhance the eye. 

In the animation below an ape like face (probably sub-human) transforms into an almost lioness facial likeness. Another one eyed transforming face can be seen in this other piece of portable rock art, Face to Face.

Another face can be seen leftwards in the picture below.

From another angle a more gorilla like head profile can be seen along the left edge.

An elephant head profile can be seen with trunk curled under, top left in the picture below. The curled trunk makes up the brow ridge.
