 Eoglyphs, what are they?

What are Eoglyphs? Eoglyphs (Dawn Glyphs) encompasses the landscape of symbols or glyphs commonly found in ancient Figure Stones, palaeolithic flint tools and handaxes. The same symbols are found repeatedly in stone artefacts from across the world and have a common set of observable loose rules and conventions. Eoglyphs most often depict the cranial profiles of known creatures, (Apes. Bears Lions) thumb and hand shapes but commonly also creature front half or whole profile shapes. It is common to find such symbols combined with some visual ambiguity, so that, for example, a slight rotation of the artefact will trigger the recognition of a different glyph and/or creature.
