Of the four human head effigy platform pipes excavated by Squire and Davis this is the only completely restored example. It's also the one that Squire and Davis liked the best, remarking that it's, "the most beautiful head of the series." and they go on to say "The workmanship of this head is unsurpassed by any specimen of ancient American art which has fallen under the notice of the authors, not excepting the best productions of Mexico and Peru. The whole is smooth and well polished." The drawing also appears to have an ear ring but it's not mentioned by Squire and Davis.
