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

Comment: Same artifact as in previous slide, rotated to suddenly reveal head of 'bear cub' with big ears and two chips removed to indicate eyes. If this is intentional art it is a stunning masterpiece. Even if only natural it is certainly a one-in-a-trillion found object.
