Platform pipe from Hopewell Culture
Description: This pipe in effigy (a likeness or representation) of a dog was excavated from Tremper Mound, a Hopewell culture site located five miles north of Portsmouth, Ohio, in Rush Township, Scioto County. The Hopewell People created the pipe in 100-200 AD. The dog is seated with its head pointed upward and mouth partially open. A narrow section of bowl (from top edge nearly to the bottom of bowl just behind dog's left shoulder) and the left forepaw have been restored. The effigy pipe measures approximately 1.5" x 3.5" x 1.25" (3.81 x 8.89 x 3.18 cm). This object is held in the Ohio Historical Society Archeology Collection. View on Ohio Memory.
