The Pedra Furada Site, Brazil

Not many photographs of artifacts from Pedra Furada have been published, but sketches in the Athena Review seem to suggest a similarity to the material at Day's Knob, like the three picks shown above next to a sketch of one from Pedra Furada dated to 25,000- 32,000 years BP from charcoal in context.

Dr. James B. Harrod's OriginsNet website provides an extensive and thought- fully presented array of photographs of artifact material from Oldowan through Upper Paleolithic in the context of "researching the origins of art, religion, and symbolic meaning".

The similarity of much of the material to that at Day's Knob is quite evident.  A notable example is a collection of artifacts assembled by Dr. Walther Matthes of the University of Hamburg, Germany at

Dr. Matthes noted the prevalence of bird and double-face (Janus-like or "bifrontal") motifs in Ice Age artifact material near the coast of the North Sea.
