(via Anonymous Works: Circa 1860 Folk Art Catlinite Pipe in the Form of a White Man)

Catlinite pipe carved in the form of a white man in 1840s attire resting on his arms and lower back, with his legs raised. The toes point toward the reeded mouthpiece with a poured lead decoration at its top. The legs form the pipe’s stem; the upper torso, head and hat form the bowl. The carved details are finely incised. The pipe was probably made by or for David Faribault, Sr. and given by his son, David Faribault, Jr. to Reverend Moses N. Adams, an Indian Agent in Flandreau, South Dakota, in the 1870s.

Collection of Minnesota Historical Society.
