The soft fine grain Kansas pipestone material enabled the carver to shape and smooth the piece and then incise or score lines upon three sides. The function of the artifact is unknown, it may have been a "work in process." It was found during excavations at the 1983 Kansas Archeology Training Program at the Crandall site in Rice County. The Crandall site is a Late Ceramic period camp site in Rice County occupied by Little River focus Great Bend aspect (protohistoric Wichita) peoples.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
