The lady who sent me these pics wants help identifying this stuff. I have never seen anything like this. I've included her descriptions below. If you have some questions for the owner, email.
"...It is a whistle in the shape of an old woman's head. I think it is
carved from bone but it could also be made from clay or even rock. I found her in
Lincoln County, Mo.
along with some arrowheads and what appears to be a sharpening stone. If you
could help me figure out what this is I would certainly appreciate it. ..."
|"The holes in the figure are at the bottom and then two openings on
so that when you blow on the bottom it makes a shrill whistling sound. I
don't think it is a necklace because it would hang upside down."
|"...As for the long item, it is made of stone. It is slightly
more then 1/2 inch
thick and about1 1/4 inches at it's widest point. It has several brown and
black 'stains'. It is 6" long (one end is broken off). "
