Mississippian culture vessel from the Berry site in Missouri. Features an incised feline motif. This photo shows the bottom of the cat vessel. What's neat about this pot is that it combines two creatures typically associated with the Mississippian Lowerworld - i.e., the cat and serpent. In this photo you can actually see the rattles on the serpent's tail on the left side and the critter's head on the right side.
"Frog Effigy Pipe", Cahokia style, Missouri flint clay, Mississippian culture, found in the Craig Mound at the Sprio Site in Oklahoma. The style of this pipe indicates that it may have been made in the Cahokia Mounds area. The frog is sitting on a platform which is a common feature on other Cahokia style pipes.
