What Is It?

Postby orin stepanek » Sun Sep 04, 2016 11:30 pm

I'M not sure I remember how to do this! I found this item in my garden. It looks like it is stone but is shaped like a bone of something! :shock:

Looks to me like part of a little statue's legs broken off at the torso and the feet broken as well. Makes me think of some kind of ceramic angel decoration.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

I've never thought of it that way; It is hollow in side!

Someone's attempt at making bread that's gone really wrong (think rock solid hard)? :D :lol2:

A totally desiccated rawhide chew toy? Soak it in water and see if it stops being stone-like.

No; definitely like stone or ceramic. I cant imagine it as part of a statute; but the folds of the statute that Neufer submitted seems to have some similar type of folds! Seems more like stone than ceramic though! I'm kind of going with geckzilla and neufer. I'm not sure though! I wish it were petrified bone of some big bird; than maybe it would be worth something! :lol2: :roll:
