Notes

This Saddleface bannerstone is finely sculpted and polished with a small horn on either edge of the perforation, a common variation of this form. Both sides have pointed ridges that form a symmetrical diamond-shaped bottom and top. The dark spotting of the light-colored granite is diagonally-oriented across the surface of the stone. The stone has been broken and repaired with glue. The break and repair appear to be historical. 266/6 has been written in black and pencil on one side with remnants of wax used for installation. There is aged Styrofoam in the perforation, used for installation.
