These two statues are on display in the museum at the Etowah Mounds Historic Site. They were found during excavation of Mound C. They represent a male(R)/female(L) pair and are considered representations of ancestors, most probably the original leaders of the chiefdom. They date approximately to 1250-1375 A.D. and were found in one of the last burials at Mound C. The male(R) measures 24 inches and the female (L) 22 inches in height. Both are made from Georgia marble, the outcroppings of which are nearby. The paint is original and there are at least three pigments evident. There is also some copper residue on the chests of both statues. They appear to have been buried in haste, the archaeologist stating that they were “jumbled one on top of the other.” The right arm of the male was broken off. They are considered amongst the best statues ever uncovered in the southeast. For more on Etowah see story on page 189.
