In celebration of 2018 being the Year of the Dog...
Meet PGM January Artifact of the Month 2015-33-023!
This shell coyote effigy is in the late stages of being carved and may have been intended to be a pendant.
Even though the Hohokam lived in the desert, they were very well known for their beautifully carved shell jewelry.
You can see more examples of their artistry on display in the galleries at PGM.
