LINKING SPIRO'S ARTISTIC STYLES: THE COPPER CONNECTION

Abstract

The recent discovery of a copper repoussé plate representing a serpent/hawk design, from the Spiro site (34Lf40) in eastern Oklahoma, provides the basis for identifying an important link between artistic styles used to decorate the well known engraved shells and those used to decorate copper plates. Such rare links provide clues for assessing the development of the Spiroan stylistic traditions and even the role played by the different media. The copper plate discussed here embodies design principles that conform to those of the Craig style as represented in shellwork.
