I received a request for information on an artifact from a reader:
"I bought the artifact online about four years ago from a guy in the Midwest who was selling his grandmother's stuff after her passing. He found it at the bottom of a box of her things. He didn't know what it was - just advertised it as a "stone head". When I pressed him for more information, he checked with his relatives, and they told him his grandmother had the thing in her possession since she was a young woman (in the 1930's), but they didn't know how she came by it. I have done some research, and the stylistic elements are consistent with Pacific Northwest Indian representations of Sasquatch in masks and totems.
I did show it to the crowd at the 2009 Yakima Bigfoot Roundup during Kathy Strain's presentation of Native American cultural traditions that deal with Sasquatch-type beings. It generated a lot of interest among the attendees. Kathy and I have been trying to get in touch with Roderick Sprague, who wrote a book about scientific investigation into the Sasquatch phenomenon, and is considered an expert on the anomalous stone heads that have been found in the Columbia River valley area over the last hundred or more years. So far, we have not been able to get a response from him." Tony
NOTE: Can anyone offer any information on this artifact? Thanks...Lon
