Collection: Native American Hopewell Culture

From about 100 BC to AD 500, Hopewell artists cut delicate flat forms from sheets of mica, flint, and pearl. This required not only artistry but also the skill to develop and use tools such as chisels, whetstones, grindstones, flint knives, and hammers. They focused on the shapes of birds, human figures, and hands. They were also skilled at carving stone and molding clay, and created objects featuring naturalistic animal and human forms.
