Given the weight, it wouldn't take long (maybe even a single flood) to bury it 3 feet down. Rain soaking into the clay can turn it into "slip", allowing the artifact to eventually settle to the depth where it was eventually discovered. Giving it another 20 years or so, (rhetorically) who knows how far it would've sunk to.

It's very interesting, but it is clearly not made by a native culture, as it is in a very European form of a like like bust. What native American sculpture there is is very stylized in form and almost never realistic. I agree with those that think its modern, and it looks a lot like a craft kit item from the seventies.
