Look what peter found!!!
a beautifully crafted & preserved quartz arrowhead!!
(you can see the foundation of the back of the house in the photo above)
the workmanship is exquisite and it is in near perfect condition...
...it's facets shine in the sun
& I can only hold it and imagine the skill it took to make it...
was it used? ...how old is it? ...why was it so close to the house?
usually we will find remnants of these in the fields...
...but never one as perfect as this or so close to home.
it is almost perfectly symmetrical, and the chip on the tip is a clue as to it being used...
perhaps a deer kill to feed a small family?
was the arrowhead used by a seasoned hunter
...or a boy-child being taught by his elders to hunt?
the indigenous Native Americans in this area are Monocan ~
we'll never know the answers,
but we're blessed to have it find us...
I'm happy it is seeing the sunlight again.
