We acquired this on an ongoing dig here in Arizona. It was camoflauged under an alligator juniper tree, just blending in with the dirt, half covered. We undug the rest of it and are not sure of the material, it's about 30-35 lbs, height is 17-1/2" tall and 20" wide and 9" depth, with very detailed artwork! It is not clay or cement, it has the feel and look of what corral looks like after being beat by the water for many years. The details are truly amazing and it appears to have been painted or possibly a reddish color at one time. I have included a photo of the house where we are digging. This used to be an old Wells Fargo Stage Stop. I would guess this dates maybe to 1920ish but not for certain. If anyone has ever seen something like this and can identify it, please let me know!
