Cut-out from Hopewell Culture
Description: Very thin piece of mica is cut in a fan shape. The base of the fan is mostly square, and the corners are broken away. The item may have traces of red or brown paint on it. There appears to be a pattern cut in the top layer, a semi-circle running from side edge to side edge about two-thirds from the bottom. Above this section are two semi-circular cut-outs on either side of a strip that is now broken, but may have originally run to the top edge. The mica is very pale brown, yellowish brown and very dark grayish brown in color. Item was excavated from the Raymond J. Ater Mound in Concord Township, Ross County, Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
