    Florida Timucua effigy stone

    Hello all. New here and was just wondering if I could reach out to all the awesome people on this forum. I am interested in finding any other examples of timucuan artifacts related to effigies. I have in my posession an incredible carved steatite human effigy from central Florida. I am just wondering if there are more of them or anything similar out there. Besides the two faces on a boulder of identical style. Any help is much appriciated. I am positive as to the locstion and can trace it back to the originating watershed.

    That is a very nice artifact. Soapstone is not common in Fl. so was most likely brought here by trading between NA's. Any more info? Was it found in a Fl. river? Welcome to the site.

    That's a great piece. Are the faces on the bolder in the same area? I wish that the people who try to see images in plain rocks could see this one !

    I was told there was a source of this particular stone type near GA. This was found in a river while a family friend was building some sort of retainig wall in the mid 60s. Apperently there is a photo somewhere of the same rock used as a door stop in the 70s. Not a door stop anymore.

    The faces on the boulder are somewhat nearby within 10 miles. I am working on finding out exactly where this one came from. Have it narrowed down to a couple tributaries. The boulder is pretty famous. Click image for larger version.
