Commentaires : This is believed to be a hooded effigy bottle from the Mississippian culture of pre-Columbian North America. This term covers a large group of aboriginal peoples that lived over a considerable area of the Eastern United States before the arrival of Europeans. The Mississippian culture was at its height between the years 1200 and 1500. Pre-Columbian peoples had lived in that area for a considerable period before the emergence of the Mississippian culture. The Mississippian cultural practices are believed to have gradually superseded the practices of the Woodland culture which was dominant from 1000 BC to 1000 CE. The region where the Mississippian practices began includes areas of present-day Missouri and Arkansas. The Mississippian practices included some development in areas like making pottery and agriculture, as well as the pattern of their communities. Agriculture was more intensive and led to the building of more significant towns. Large flat topped mounds were built in communities as the center of spirituality. The Cahokia mounds in Illinois are a famous example of this pattern. The materials included in the Mississippian pottery made them more durable. The pottery bottles made in that culture were often decorated with human or animal figures.
