If you’re a regular reader of the Artsology blog, you might have seen some of our posts where readers have sent in pictures of rock art that they’ve found, hoping to gain some information about their finds. We’ve got another interesting case here now …

These pictures of a singular rock were sent to us by Misty, who lives in Robertson County, TX. She said she found it in a rural area, face down in the dirt, and provided us with an idea of what it looked like when she picked it up, below right. This back view looks like any other typical rock, at first glance. She was collecting rocks for her flower garden, and didn’t even notice the face (below left) until days later when she was raking leaves.

Misty says that it measures approximately 2 3/4 inches long by 1 3/4 inches wide, so it’s pretty small for something that has such specific features on the face. If there’s anyone out there who has any information on rock art finds like this, or suggestions on where Misty could take this to get it assessed, please let us know via the comments section below. Below are two more close-up views of the face from different angles.
