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

Comment: This and the next nine images are all views of the same object. I suggest identifying this as a microlithic female figurine in the biface/handaxe form. 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 2.2 cm.
