The little wolf

What is interesting is that as the stone stands it portrays an animal on one side and a human profile vice-versa of the stone. There are also several heads( animal/people) with the eye and mouth at the correct distance. One could say that with that kind of stone which a lot of little holes that nature " made" those. But there are too many to believe that these are just coincidences.

Not much

These don't look like much at first sight. Nothing spectacular. Yet, there are dozens of " hidden" images on them. And hidden is maybe not the right word because they are there. It is just that they are not always easy to see, the images don't always jump at you. In any case, these stones have filled me with hours of wonder, one by one sitting next to my computer. I have taken little breaks, taking a glance at them, sometimes seeing something new, sometimes seeing the same thing and still feeling satisfied or wondering.

Bulging eyes

This one is about the neck and head of an animal. The eyes are with the theme one eye open and one eye closed and look like they are bulging from the head.There are also 2 circles on the side, possibly eyes also. The bottom of the stone is flat.

The grip

Here is an example of an animal fitting nicely in the grip of my hand with the head showing up.I have noticed this phenomenon several times. Or maybe it was made to fit in some other wood/other instrument...There are 2 very good grooves on the top and at the bottom.

The feel and the look

There is a certain feel and a certain look when I pick up a stone and when I just know this is a figure stone. It's about the way it feels in the hand, the weight of it, if it has curves, some pummeling, some cuts, some holes. Like this one. It's interesting that in some way the cuts, etc.. were more visible than when washed. The stone covered with dirt was like a black and white painting with the texture seen with the different values. But anyway here it is with some of its companions. And here washed. Could it be some animal with a large mouth or on the other side an animal eating another?
