This unique human effigy pipe, known as "Lucifer" because of its satanic appearance, depicts a naked man with a larger-than-life head holding the head of a deer to the ground in his left hand and a fringed object in his right hand. The pipe is made of red flint clay from a source near St. Louis, Missouri not far from the great Mississippian center of Cahokia. Height 23 centimeters (9 inches).
