Beyond its strange construction and design, the stone is marked with bizarre carvings ranging from astronomical symbols to a human face along its smooth egg faced sides. On one side, there are what appears to be inverted arrows, a moon with some dots and a spiral. Another side has an ear of corn with seventeen kernels in the row. Underneath, is a circle with three figures; one of which looks like a deer's leg along with some kind of animal with large ears. The “third” side shows a tepee with four poles, an oval and a human face. The face is sunken with a nose that does not rise above the surface of the egg with lips that seem to give the image some kind of purposeful expression. Mysterious Stone Egg from Lake Winnipesaukee.
