CULTURE: "MOUND BUILDER" / Louisiana AGE: Middle Archaic / Ca. 1500 B. C. SIZE: 6" in diameter by 3 1/2" in height...!0" from bird's head to end of tail. This hard to find example is unlike most pieces from the period in that it is beautifully made as opposed to the "clunky" pieces often seen from the time. The bowl is thin walled and highly fired. The avian head is highly stylized. The exterior has two incised lines circling the outer section. A fine rare example of the type.
