So I'm guessing there will be controversy over these and that's fine but before u say no way there's no markings or knicks or blah blah blah. Stone sculptures are some of the most widely found littlest known about artifacts there are. I know everyone probably had maybe seen 3 dots on a rock and saw a face but these go beyond that... all of these where found on or near indian mounds. All have truly survived the tell of time and have a story to tell. I'm after that story. So all this being said. Please put your input on these and your welcome to share your funds that resemble any of these! Thank you!

One of the biggest myths, and outright lies in the artifact field today is supposed "rock art" Rock art was invented by a sneaky ebay seller back in the early 2000s, and people ate it up like crazy. Since then, anybody who picks up a strangely shaped rock, is now entitled to say what they want about it.

Sir, I mean zero disrespect to you, but the only story those rocks tell is when they were formed by natural processes. Just because something is found close to a historic site, doesn't make it historical.

Another thing, what are these supposed to represent? You should not have to squint, turn it over six thousand times to see a face, hold it up to the light, or any of that. If it was a true effigy, you would know it right off the bat. Why? Because the Native Americans didn't waste their time on something that took a massive amount of squinting in order to see. They made sure you KNEW what it was, so you didn't have to guess.

My suggestion is, put the false narrative of "rock art" out of your mind, and stick to tangible stone tools. Please, do not become a part of the growing epidemic of misinformed people, spreading the myth of rock art. The LAST thing we need, is the younger generation eating this stuff up.

And before I get criticized for not pointing out true native american art forms, please look up the birdman tablet, birdstones and stuff from the Oregon region.

Those unfortunately seem to be nature shaped rocks.

If I collected natural rocks like that to show you I would have no room in the spare room.
