Lady and Child Human Effigy Bottle  This bottle is an original Mississippian Style Effigy bottle.  It is similar to numerous human effigy bottles that were made during the Mississippian period 1000-1400 AD
This pot is made from native clay and traditionally fired in a wood fire which was smothered creating the black color.

During the Mississippian period a large number incised pots were made with various stylized bird designs.  Classic Southeastern Cultural Complex art was believed to relate almost entirely to otherworldly events and supernatural actors, however, the art from the central Mississippi valley also includes a large variety of ‘real world’ beings such as fish, deer. Shells, gourds, and other animals.  These were depicted with a varying degree of realism.

Size: 2.25 in tall X 1.5 in wide X 1.5 in front to back.
