Figure Stones - Cloak and Dagger - Prehistoric Art

 Cloaked figures and thumb/finger shapes are probably the most common artistic impressions to be found in the world of Figure stones and portable rock art. Both of these motifs also bleed into flint tool assemblages found world wide, but the archeologists involved are often completely ignorant of the artistic images concealed in the flint tool finds, and do not realize that the flint tools also contain prehistoric art.

Take these relatively recent finds from India that apparently challenge the theory of evolution, looking closely through the finds I notice a few that I would classify as the cloaked figure and one that matches closely with the Thumb motif. I have used scientific method to prove that what I describe as the cloaked figure motif goes beyond just a tooling shape, but also appear in finds with no apparent cutting proposes. This means that the shape has a use that is not as a standard tool, logically a figurative explanation is apparent when one studies the details of finer examples.

 The above animation gives a good impression of the cloaked figure motif, although its design is fairly simple, some face like details are visible.

 The Animation below also contains a good figure impression likeness, but look for the finger and claw motif.

 I suggest you zoom in and study the images below close up to see the finer details, the 'claw tip' also has traces of pigment.

 This next find not only triggers the cloaked figure but also again triggers the digit with nail,  I suggest thumb in this case.

The second in the sequence matches a thump of finger motif very closely, face details are also present in a few here but I suggest you look very closely at the last one. You may also notice the impression of an arm, hand, and cloaked sleeve in the last 3 images.
