Jar with four punctated strap handles and four alternating applique faces on a plain neck. The body has vertical rows of punctations that were smoothed over before the clay dried. The bowl circumference symbolizes the Mississippian cosmoscape, with the four faces representing cardinal direction beings peering from their respective domains. This jar would date between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
