"Big Boy" or "Resting Warrior" stone effigy pipe from the Craig Mound at Spiro (26 centimeters high or about 10 inches). The seated figure wears a pair of long-nosed god mask earrings. On his back is a feathered cape, similar to those found in fragmentary condition at Spiro. Around his neck are heavy strings of beads. On his head is a curious cap that archeologist James Brown believes served to display embossed copper plates. From the collections of the University Museum, University of Arkansas.
