POLISHED CHERT LIZARD
CALHOUN COUNTY, ILLINOIS
TO PAGE 1
This polished chert lizard effigy was found in 1974
by Harry Messman in Calhoun County, Illinois near
the town of Hardin. This is a well shaped example.
The head and neck is fairly long and all the legs
come to a point. The ends of the head and tail are
more blunt. This lizard effigy is made of white
Burlington chert and it measures 4 3/8 inches
(11.1 cm) long.
