Sandstone carving is Scotland’s ‘earliest face’
Published on August 21st, 2009 | by Admin0
It is believed to be the only Neolithic carving of a human form to have been discovered in Scotland – with only two others said to have been found elsewhere in the UK.
The carving is flat with a round head on top of a lozenge-shaped body. The face has heavy brows, two dots for eyes and an oblong for a nose. It is thought other scratches on top of the skull could be hair.
