The Mystery Stone Head of New Paltz

The Bayer Stone Head: What is it?

I went to college in New Paltz, but I never heard of this thing! To me, the pics look like a re-worked natural stone, but who knows:

What face stares out from the nearly thirty-pound stone head found in the ground in 1932, in New Paltz, New York?...It was dug up by William Bayer at the age of 9 while he was helping dig a grave. As the young Bayer related the story to his son (who is David Chisholm’s friend) years later, he surmised it was at about four feet deep when he found it. There was no Indian mound involved.
