Hammer / Pestle Tool - Length 9.5" Weight 8 lbs.

Early Archaic (11,600 – 8,000 BP)

For sale by owner. Because of where this blue basalt Lingham stone was found (in a part of the US where early native Americans may have first settled) it dates between the Paleo-Indian and Early Archaic Indian Periods: It is extremely old pestle tool. Other uses can easily be imagined. However, photos don't do it justice: Midnight Blue basalt. Lower right Photos shown wet.

This pre-Columbian FREE STANDING stone art "was found in Washington state, Snohomish county at the start of the famous Mt. Loop Highway in a little town called Darington. Darington is located in the northwest of our state approx 2 hrs north of Seattle. Darington started when a handful of people from North Carolina moved there to pan for gold an other minerals. My family has owned property on the Sauk River since the early 70's. We do a lot of fishing, camping and hunting there. In 1998 we had a family get together on Memorial weekend. My father and I were fishing on the Sauk river. On our way back I noticed this very interesting rock. I picked it up and showed it to my father and other family members back at our camp site. For all these years all I knew was that it was just a funny shaped rock. I moved out of my parents house when I was 20 and now I'm married at 28. My wife kept hiding this odd-shaped rock, so I told her I'd do some research on it. I had no idea the meaning this rock has and the history behind it. I've always had it out on display and it has always been a great conversation piece."  C.

 PRICELESS      Potawatomi Indian Maiden    FOR SALE

Middle Woodland Period (2,200 – 1,800 BP)

This sublime ancient work of Native American pre-Columbian Indian art is a one-of-a-kind bust. It is believed to be carved by a member of the Potawatomi (pronounced "Poh-tuh-WAH-toh-mee" which means "fire keepers") nation about 2,000 years ago at the time of Christ. (The Potawatomi are among the wave of Algonquian-speaking people who occupied the Great Lakes region from prehistoric times which includes the Spoon River valley region where our stacking stone figures were recovered.) Love sparks the greatest works of art and this beautiful free-standing bust has been worked on all sides. It was even worked flat on the bottom by the ancient artisan - apparently by gliding the bust across a large flat stone to plane it uniformly. A breath-taking centerpiece in any museum (two museums now have tried to acquire this rare and priceless piece) it's stunning profile will stop you awestruck in your tracks and draw you into its timeless story. An antiquities investment that you will not want to part with.

To Whom This May concern:

This free-standing statue is related to the Potawatomi Indians. It was found in my family’s backyard in 1984 in Gary, Indiana, by me and my older brother. When we originally found this statue my older brother and I were playing and running around in our backyard, and I tripped over the top part of this statue. The tip of the head was sticking out of the sand about 2 inches. Out of curiosity we started digging. After about 30~45 minutes of digging we were finally able to pull out this statue out of the sand dunes. The statue appears to be made out of a very soft pumice stone.

My brother and I were just in complete shock as to what we had just found. We ran into the house and showed it to our parents. After a few months had passed my father tried to get more results as to history of this statue. He spoke to some local Native Americans, and they stated that it is a Potawatomi statue of a lady. They stated from the way the feathers flowed in a downward pattern, down on the back of her head, that it was a time of peace for them. They also stated that she can possible be holding something, or cradling a baby.

After this feedback, my father also took it to the Chicago Museum where they did in fact confirm this was a Potawatomi Statue. They requested that we donate this statue to the museum, but my father declined their offer and decided to keep it. Therefore, this statue has remained in our family every since.
