Notes on items 2014-03-30 rAH    The photograph V22d3802 is not diagnostic. It is taken at an angle and slightly below the artifact, thus obscuring all diagnostic measurement. If the artifact is intact and not broken with the exception of the legs this view might show a forequarter breast ridge, which is of note.
   V22d3803 seems to be a view in the caudal plane. If so, there is an indentation between the legs, as if made by a thumb, which is most interesting. There appears to be a hole for a tail above the indentation.
   I do not feel confident saying that this is an intact figurine, although there does not appear to be a break at either caudal or cranial termination. See V22d3801. If this is a dorsal view, the ratio of forequarters to either torso or the uncertain hindquarters is most unusual. I believe the figurine is in fact the cranial section (forequarters) and that the artifact is broken at the torso; the break is disguised by what may be exuberant cleaning, brushing away the rough edges at the break. It is unlikely that depositional action could account for this smooth a termination.
   Recovered from k105. [Input file: Y401JW.j]
