Found this strange thing in the woods and wanted your opinion. Looks like a carved face on the stone although I do realize it's probably natural. I checked the stone for any cracks to see if there's a water infiltration that could have caused it but didn't find anything. Anyways, just wanted your opinion. I know Abenaki made stone carvings of a face on the rock cliffs, but this thing seems different. It's about 8-10 inches long and 6 inches wide.

Thanks

Could have been an ancient shoe print? But I suspect it would be an up hill battle trying to get an Archeologist to even look at it.
I did communicate with my contact at the archeological department just to be safe. It's still undetermined at what this could be.

Looks to me to be carved into the stone by someone. There's too much bilateral symmetry to be natural, IMO.
I can't really think of how it could have been created by a natural process other than some weird one in a billion coincidence. It sure does look carved.

Thanks ! Time to switch gloves for that kind of weather. Lol
I know, almost lost my fingers today. Better get a better pair, the problem is I go through them one pair every few weeks, so seems like a waste of money destroying a nice pair of warm gloves.

Do you think that this could be a Big Foot selfie? It Does resemble a face.

Hmm interesting, I want to say it's natural I know most aren't but there are times nature is quite good at being an artist. Though I'm definitely not for sure.

What type of stone is it in Sandstone or granite ,being sandstone would be pretty easy to carve into granite not so much. My thoughts are there was a fossil of some type in there that weathered away leaving the impression behind.
