A friend of mine found this carved rock in Shannon County, Missouri and would like to know if it is an artifact or ? I am including a few images photographed from different angles - front, side and back.
Looks like you have a museum in your town. Here is the contact number for The Shannon County Museum 573-247-8706.

Post back what you learn!
I would contact someone in the nearest museum. They would be able to tell, or refer you to someone who can.
I would email the pictures to Jeffrey Ferguson, assistant professor of archeology at University of Missouri with the information you provided here. Good luck! firstname.lastname@example.org
