        Posting a question like that in this particular thread is like using a stick of dynamite as a fire poker haha.

        What you have there absolutely does look like a bear, but it is just another of Mother Natures amazing works of accidental art. I would have kept it for sure, but it is not an ancient artifact made by human hands.

          How can you tell? What I need look for? I have found several rocks in the Little Tennessee River that look like effigies. Would like to know so I can leave them be and look for something else. They are hard to ignore and found in river 100-200 feet from effigies confirmed by WCU. Thanks for your wisdom.

            One rule of thumb is that if you have wonder, if you have to think about it, if you have to ask because you’re not sure, then it’s not an effigy. Prehistoric Native American artisans were every bit as skilled and accomplished as in any other culture, ancient or modern. Here’s an example of a sandstone effigy. No guesswork involved, one recognizes instantly that it’s man made. They will be obvious. If you have to ask, at all, then it’s almost surely just a rock….

              If you have to think about it, it ain't. Nice advice. Scientific. It clearly looks like a bear (according to member) but it is clearly not?

              I think it is impossible to know in any case without an established set of indicia and methods to measure and identify those indicia, controlling for the necessary environmental factors and a million others. Here, we just have people eyeballing balls and strikes. More prestige in calling a ball.

              I have read enough posts and responses here to know that no one knows with respect to hard stone. There is no way to know it is man made. No way to know it isn't. Some people here just really savor the suck-ups "look dad, look what I found, I pray your judgment." Pitiful.
