The soft, fine grained pipestone enable the carver to shape and incise these artifacts that were recovered from the Cedar Creek site in Doniphan County. They were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The Cedar Creek site was a multicomponent site, having both Kansas City Hopewell and Nebraska Aspect/Upper Republican occupations. The site had the remains of at least one house. Though striations cover the artifacts and suggest something more was pictured on the pipestone, their purpose is unknown.
