On the Cover
Pictured on the cover and below is one of the finest of all prehistoric pottery pipes. It portrays a “Screech Owl”. This pipe is painted with red ocre and displays exceptional artistic skill. It was found approximately twenty years ago beneath a hut floor in Tallassee, Alabama. It is very large, measuring nearly 5 inches in height and 3 ½ inches wide. The bowl shows evidence of smoking. The views below show the fine work at the stem hole and how realistic the bird portrayal is from all angles. Collection of Murray Hughes, Bridgeport, Alabama
