This one comes from Matt S. in New Jersey, who writes: “Found this not too long ago on the banks of the Delaware, in a spot where there is no beach, just about two rocky feet between the river and where I was standing. It was upside down when I saw it, but I was compelled to pick it up and put it in my back pocket. I took it out twenty minutes later to reveal the face side!
The picture seems to show a clear depiction of a closed eyelid, eyebrow, and a mouth in a frown … at least that’s how I visually interpret it. I’m not a rock art expert, by any stretch, so it’s hard for me to know just from looking at a photograph (and not seeing or holding the rock in person) whether these marks are clearly “made” by a human hand or not. The way they are positioned in relation to what could be seen as a nose would certainly suggest that they are purposely-made marks. As always when I post these reader shares, I invite any feedback from any experts out there or others who have found similar things or might have information to share in the comments section below.
