Face from Spanish Hill

Dave Bentley grew up on Elmira Street, South Waverly, right below Spanish Hill.  About 40 years ago as he and his brother were walking along the southeastern face of the hill, Dave saw something sticking out of the ground.

The pictures here show what it was.

Most interesting is that the material that it is made of has been identified as anything from bone, pumice, and soapstone...whatever it is - - it is VERY light. Who made this face and when are obviously other questions we do not have answers to, but it really is a great piece to see.

This face is now on loan by Dave at SRAC for a limited time, so come in and see it up close and tell us what you think!
