Iegelpoel, NL, Micro-Acheulian, c. 200-500,000 BP (?) / d)imicrobif

Comment: I suggest identifying this as a microlithic handaxe with chip removed to signify the head. If so, it would be a microlithic sculpture of a 'goddess' or 'birthgiver' in the tradition of the European Acheulian 'Handaxe Sculpture' Symbolizing Tradition. Size 2 cm.
