          This massive stone head was discovered at a depth of 10 ft in 1811 when foundations were being dug for a house at Essex, MA.  It is twice life-size, and the style invites comparison with that of known Nordic sculpture, notably the sunken eye-sockets (as in a Breton style) and the straight narrow lips.  It is on display in the Peabody Museum, Salem, MA.
