Eagle effigy pipe from a deep, Early Caddo shaft grave (Pit Q) in Mound C at the Crenshaw site, Miller County, Arkansas. Such striking artifacts are typically found only in graves thought to be those of important leaders. The bowl of this stone pipe is visible on bird's back. A reed or bone pipe stem would have been inserted into an intersecting hole that exits through the bird's back. Courtesy Pictures of Record, Inc.
