This was found on Private property. Here is the info I have on it. This is known as death stone. There is a arrow mark under the tail of what looks like a dog, pointing upward to other etch marks in the right upper corner.The rear also has an etched animal on the back but it did not survive as well as the front. It probably was exposed to harsh elements while laying back side up. They were etched by the holy man for a warrior and usually were his spirits or protection giving courage and strength in life and battle. Many have hunting scenes or marks for the six grandfathers (north south east west sky and earth) or the good and bad roads of life(east and west & north and south). The rock was carried in his leather pouch with other medicine chosen by him for luck and strength. It belonged to my dad who was a collector of Native American artifacts , gems , stones , military memorabilia and family stuff dating back to his relative President Polk. He had a impressive collection of 300 arrowheads , celts, axe heads , shell necklaces , Stone and pestals , stine blades , gorgets and more.
