SHARKS TOOTH EFFIGY
Bone arrow points are rare in the Mississippi Valley.
They can be compared to gar scale points because
both are made of organic materials and do not survive
the natural elements like stone. The two bone points
pictured here are related to the Mississippian culture
and the Cahokia Mounds Historic site, located near
St. Louis, Missouri. These two points are actually effigies
of sharks teeth. The smaller bone point in this picture
measures 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm) long.
