Cloud Woman

This chalcedony seductress looks as if she is about to lilt into the air. Hair tied up in a bun, she blushes back over her shoulder with erect nipple. A blue and white botryoidal cavity forms an engagingly open yoni between her “legs” which can be seen from behind and while she is lying on her “back”. I found the base stone when it washed out from the hill in 1998 and it was so beautiful, I kept it as a paper weight. In 2002 I found her head at the same spot and the base stone took on a whole different dimension. There are two fossil coral (Heliolites) imprints from the Devonian Period on her far side. Silky smooth, pure chalcedony; pearly white w pale blue highlights and iron-oxide age spots from long-term burial ~ very sensual, 2 parts; horizontal or vertical orientation. 6.3”h; 830 gm

Dancing Woman

Dancing is a human expression of happiness (and sometimes agitation). Breasts swaying with the chant, this beautiful figure seems to glide towards the viewer. Olive green Pennsylvanian Period glacial slate. 8.5″h; 1257 gm

Joyful Woman

The unfathomable mystery that is woman becomes the human race. Ecstasy is not for the timid. This ancient Love Goddess dwells on the pinnacle of sexual bliss welling-up into a rising blush. Her jaw is locked open. Her open yoni, coated with super-fine clear-quartz crystals, sparkle glistening-wet with arousal. Sex creates more clan members thus prosperity. It engages all senses, heightening awareness. Some forms of shamanism as a reflective discipline holds sex as a sacred act – offering a taste of a broader and deeper state-of-being. Stacked wet. Milk and honey chalcedony hips w crystal-coated botryoidal yoni/Butterscotch jasper breasts/Caramel jasper head, 3 parts. 6.5”h; 905 gm

Fire Belly Woman

This one is really eye-catching for two major reasons. One, she has a crystal eye – long gone cloudy with age and sandy soil. Two, her spine coils her into an arc as every muscle in her body tightens for the release. Her eyes squint and go vacant as her lower lip droops to the left side of her face as if to utter a groan from deep within her soul. Large breasts hanging off to the sides of her ribcage, tightened stomach muscles and twisted pelvis – poses her in such a way that only a man who has been with a woman at peak experience understands. Olive/cinnamon swirl jasper w crystal eye (There is a smooth semi-clear olive quartz “pillow” under her breast stone found with the figure), 4 parts; horizontal and vertical orientation. 3.0″h x 5.3″L; 472 gm

Heart-Felt Woman

Since I couldn’t stack any of these pieces, I went horizontal: This art went together like a jig-saw puzzle, but what came out stirred my soul. In many early societies the casting of stones and how they fell foretold fortune. This is probably where the game of craps originated. Here, these Ice Age Venus stones lay out the figure of a woman with red heart and yoni stones and for the holder, may have preempted fate for success in love. Cinnamon jasper w red jasper heart and blush jasper yoni (close-up below), 8 parts; horizontal orientation. 8.0L; 598 gm

Harvest Woman

The stones of this red, yellow and green (Salsa) chalcedony (a new classification of stone that we named) crop fertility figurine have been heavily handled. This idol may have been used to appease the spirits to bring forth good harvest. Though all 3 stones have all 3 colors, the color proportions vary: The reddish rootstalk-shaped hips (with oily sheen patina), the angle of the green foliage-like breasts, and the yellowish-white kernel-shaped head, all suggests the clan may have harvested or collected early corn (teosinte). Wait a minute. Corn cultivation isn’t supposed to happen until the Mississippian Indian period 1,200 years ago. But in 13 years we’ve found few Mississippian points nearby. In any case, early autumn colors must have signaled the clan to migrate south. Head also resembles shelled hazelnut, which still grows around here. The tip of her left breast is missing. Salsa chalcedony w original “sheen” patina, 3 parts. 5.3”h; 412 gm

Moon Girl

With playful smile, her hair (tied into a pony-tail) flies up as she swings down to flash her inheritance. Like most figurines in our find, it’s the head stone that first gets our attention. At first, I thought it to be of a man and suspected it lay on its side. But the body stones would not stack or lay out into any form that made sense – other than the way they turned out. The head was chipped S-curved to fit right up to the body and the legs can only fit with the figure bending over. When I found the breast stone, it started to make sense. Did girls really do that back then? Note the details of the natural eye, ear and blush nose. Her mouth may have been chipped out by the ancient artisan. The red hair (which covers the scalp perfectly) and red yoni stone with its natural internal extension, as well as the head and torso, all fit like puzzle pieces. Ginger jasper w heavy alkali patina (especially on the head stone) and auburn chalcedony hair and yoni, 7 parts; horizontal orientation. 4.6″w x 5.0″tall (about 5″ sq.); 472 gm

Fang Tooth Hag

Despite the fact that this bug-eyed, snaggle-toothed woman could frighten away a bear, this fertility figure has a high sheen from being heavily handled which gives the surface a silky, sensual feel. Throughout many mythologies the old hag appears to the seeker of knowledge early in his quest. She symbolizes the first opportunity for enlightenment: This feminine principle manifests in the least attractive form to beginners to sort out the weak of heart and less compassionate. The head stone is hollow in back as if it were a red-lined mask (all appearance is an illusion). It rests in a natural recess on the breast stone, suggesting the two rocks were river-ground and polished together, her head fluttering in the current. She somehow got pregnant because her breasts are supple and full. Her bellybutton, filled with tiny clear-quartz crystals, peeks just above her half-fallen skirt. This ridge and crystal cluster suggest a sparkling seed inside her protruding belly (the birth of awakening). This figure is at first difficult to stack, but once the proper placement is found it’s very stable. High-sheen Caramel blush jasper w crystal bellybutton, 3 parts. 5.5”h; 450 gm

Rising Moon Girl

For some time, these two stones sat separately on my bookshelf mostly because they were found together but more importantly, stones from site 2601B, generally speaking, are rare. So even though this may be considered an abstract, I decided to publish this free-standing figure anyway. Her breasts extend to her sides and there is a cute pregnant belly with a navel. This pregnant Venus has a rising harvest moon for a head. And the moon stone is grooved so fits on top of this female torso stone which stands upright and conveys a universal concept. Jasper body with a pale yellow quartz crystal head ground round and smooth by the river. 2 parts. 2.6″ H; 69 gm.
