Two Michigan Slates - Is that a Mongolian?
The bishop is attempting to pacify a group of hostile Indian warriors who hold bows and arrows. Is that a Mongolian standing between them full front to us? Mongolian clothing. Text, the object looks like a writing instrument - the stylus with which these slates were written. It is inscribed in cuneiform with the name of their god. Underneath the stylus is a radiant sunshine similar to the Burrows cave artifacts on which the sunshine denotes Alexander Helios, their leader. The radiant sun is also seen at the top of the Kinderhook plates.
