** Effigy Bowl History **

Animal effigies were made in the form of bowls, jars, and bottles. They portray frogs, oppossums, conch shells, and other creatures that may embody cultural meanings derived from community myths and narratives. Fish of all types were an important fod for Mississippians, and bigmouth buffalo fish are a favored form in effigy vessels.
