Paleo Hammer Stone

Last weekend while on a search in a nearby dry creek bed near an early Archaic quarry I made a very unusual find.  A very unique hammer stone.  It is not the one shown above.  Mine is about the size of a baseball and has been worked all the way around.  The very special part however is the shape---that of a human skull with deep eye sockets.  I could just as easily call it a effigy, which it may have been.  My camera is broke now, but I will try and post a image when I can.  Happy hunting everyone!!!
