Yet Another Mesingwe

Surfing around for some Mesingwe images,
I found an old computer generated drawing of mine
that I had thought was long lost...

The Face from Lisbon CT



You can find a few faces like the one found recently in Lisbon CT in this book:







Mesingwe, the Hunter Spirit, is not mentioned in the article, but the soapstone carving from Lisbon resembles it (but no wrinkles to show his great age).

It must be True, I Read it in the Newspaper

“Richard Rogers of Lisbon holds a 4,000 year-old carved soapstone face most likely owned by a native American medicine man that Rogers found on his Lisbon property.”
Now look at this sentence below as if you were in your English Class, back when you were learning about sentence structure:
Richard Rogers (the subject of sentence) of Lisbon holds (the verb) a 4,000 year-old carved soapstone face (I forget what you call this part - object??) most likely owned by (preposition, followed by the prepositional descriptive phrase)
a native (sic) American medicine man that Rogers found on his Lisbon property.”

All I can say is “Wow!”
Now here’s the guy who will have the answers to lots of our questions…

— Some young men were walking along a wooded bike path near the Quinebaug Riverwhen they found a black spearhead laying in the soil. It looked like part of an American Indian weapon. So they asked RichardRogers, who owns the land, if they could dig for more. In two weekends, they found 80 spearheads in an area about the size of asmall bedroom. Rogers decided to see for himself. He and his son, now 22, walkedthrough the woods, and brought a bucket of water to clean their discoveries. Near a stump by the river, Rogers picked up an oval stone a little larger than a silver dollar. Something was carved in it, and he handed it to his son.


"He cleaned it up and said, `This is a face, Dad.'" The stone was a rare pendant. They had stumbled upon an ancient American Indian encampment and part of a burial ground dated more than 3,000years ago...
