Hi all IBC members.
Is there any meaning for this stone?

Ice curling is very popular here in Minnesota. Looks just like one of the stones they use in this sport.

This may sound ridiculous but here goes.
When I saw it, the first thing I thought was it looked like a tank. Especially the Tiananmen Square tank. A figurine placed on the left would seal that deal for me. lol

Patypus? <...CHORTLE...>  At first blush, it seems a worthwhile, lively image slightly beyond recognition.  When identified as a "platypus," it is both recognizable & warmly charming.

I was thinking of the Japanese notion of tsukumogami/animated"tool spirits"--  utensils that become alive & self-aware when approaching a hundred years of age.  Admittedly, no specific tool came to mind & I dismissed commenting until teased forward by your platypus, Russell.

Offered with a grain of tongue-in-cheek... :-)
