This magnificent pipe showing a chunkey player in action was originally collected by Dr. H.M. Whelpley, and later donated after his passing by his wife to the Academy of Science in St. Louis in 1943 (today the St. Louis Science Center). A discoidal is firmly grasped in his right hand and throwing sticks are held in his left hand. Note the hairbun and earspools. This pipe was originally found in Muskogee County, Oklahoma, and dates to A.D. 1100-1200. It is made from Missouri flint clay pipestone, sourced near the prehistoric city of Cahokia. For more on the recent research on this Missouri flint clay, pipestone see the article on page 106.
