The lead scientist of the research, Romuald Schild of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology at the Polish Academy of Sciences, was in the field and unable to talk to me at the time the article came out in Antiquity, but he recently reached me and was kind enough to send along some high resolution photographs of the chipped stone figurines, which I have collected in this photo essay.
