Effigy Face Pipe Animation

by Bernard K. Means

The pipe shown here is on display at the Regional Archaeological Curation Facility at Fort Lee, Virginia.  Our digital scanning project allows us to bring items that are not readily accessible–such as those behind glass cases in a museum–to a broader audience.  Clinton King and Courtney Bowles worked to scan this unique effigy pipe while we were at Fort Lee in September 2011 and Daniel Sullivan recently created this animation.  We’d like to thank Amanda Vtipil of the Regional Archaeological Curation Facility for arranging permissions for us to post this pipe.

  1. This is a superb resource. It would useful to have a traditional illustration of the pipe comparison. But the 3D is great!

  2. This is great, and the resolution is wonderful! We will try to incorporate this into a our web-based catalog!
