Here are two photographs of a statue head form the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas-City Missouri. Even though it is damaged the face is still full of expression. It's an interesting departure from the more standard stylized (almost bland) facial expression. I took them about a year ago.
Their website states it is made of yellow quartzite.
