Found in West Mexico in the mid-20th century by the late Lynn Langdon, this 7 ½” long stone animal (LLL1024), looking very much like a bear or buffalo, may have been used as a bark beater, or perhaps as a grinding tool. The bark beater interpretation is supported by the parallel grooves on its somewhat rounded back, but there’s no clear evidence on what appears to be a grinding surface that it was ever used to grind...

Aside for the overall quality and frequent uniqueness of the artifacts and relics from the Dr. Allen Heflin collection, it’s difficult not to to rank its next most important feature as the extreme care practiced by Heflin in documenting the provenance of almost every one of his approximately 10,000 treasured items. Not all of them were large, or impressive, or complete, or of museum quality, and many were simply the fragments and parts from ritually broken offerings to ancient gods, or pieces ...
