Hi all

My good friend and fellow Rare member Ray Coburn brought this lead Face in to show us in the club.I thought id better take a few pics to show some of our more learned members ;0)
It was found roughly 4 years ago and Described by Mark Lodwich as an anthropomorphic Face.
Im not sure of the age it was giving .any idea Ray ??

That i can gather Anthropomorphic means its got some animal characteristics

it reminds me of the statues on Easter island very pagan looking

Well Winkled Ray !

Picture doesnt do it justice to be honest. I saw this in the flesh at the RARE meeting last night. Its definately a purposely shaped face.

Agree Rob , looked good to me too, the piece on the bottom Ray was told was excess during pouring and should have been removed.
