On the Cover

This drawing was created especially for this issue by Ren Harvey and shows a Hopewell shaman holding an engraved circular palette, which was found at the Winchester Mound near Naples, Illinois. The disc is made from siltstone and measures 12 ½” in diameter. It is one of the earliest known palettes. It features a hand motif on both sides, similar in fashion to the Hopewell mica cutouts. Resting on the disc is a classic Hopewell monitor pipe. These are usually made from green or tan Ohio pipestone. He is wearing a bear claw necklace and has an otter fur cap on his head. The tattooing on the face is based on what can be observed on one of the human head monitor pipes shown on page 244 in the 1847 publication Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley by Squier and Davis, which today rests in the British Museum. For more information on the use of the hand motif in prehistoric cultures, see the essay by Dr. Michael Gramly on page 214 in this issue. Editor’s note: Ren Harvey specializes in Native American subjects, especially in showing prehistoric peoples in association with real artifacts. Her artwork has been acquired by numerous individuals in the archaeological community. An artwork she created highlighting artifacts from the Old Town site near Nashville was recently acquired by former Senator Bill Frist, who lives today on the property. If you would like to acquire one of her artworks, either an original or print, Ren can be contacted at renharveyart@gmail.com.
