    What is a cloud stone effigy?
    DEFINITION: a cloud stone effigy is a natural rock that when viewed from a particular perspective looks like, or resembles something thing that one's imagination can fix upon. Like a cloud that looks like George Washington for a moment but obviously is not when the cloud moves a little farther and the new perspective proves that it was just a natural illusion. By analogy so is your rock, hope that helps.
    Or you could be honest and call it pareidolia.

    Pareidolia (/pærᵻˈdoʊliə/ pair-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists (e.g., in random data).
    Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the Man in the Moon, the Moon rabbit, hidden messages within recorded music played in reverse or at higher- or lower-than-normal speeds, and hearing indistinct voices in random noise such as that produced by air conditioners or fans.

    Yes, the James also floods a lot but the location I found this was about the flood line. You are correct in it being slow. So slow that many say it runs backwards at times of extreme slow flows.
    Charles MiX county. We live about 15 miles or so from Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village, which if you haven't been there, I definitely recommend it. But because it's so close, I have been talking with those head archiologist about donating this and some other pieces I have. He hasn't verified this as official but says it's promising.
