This picture shows the Anna figure as it once appeared on display in the Chicago field Museum. The Anna figure is one of the nicest examples of Mississippian period sculptures that has been discovered to date. It can be compared to a small number of similarly designed sculptures from the Middle to Late Mississippian period. These unique artifacts have been reported from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. The Anna figure was excavated from a mound in Union County, Illinois by Thomas M. Perrine in 1873. It's most notable characteristic is the fact that it was made from a very large yellow fluorite crystal.
