Ceremonial/ShamanTablet with Incised Face. From the Famous B. Certified – 100% Authentic – Mississippian Culture. This rare Shamans Tablet has been attributed to a burial mound recovery. This ceremonial tablet has been identified and termed as a Shamans Tablet due to the features of this artifact versus a standard paint palette. Line and geometric engravings cover the front to include an incredible human face emerging from the stone (gives it a 3D appearance), and line engravings appear on the back. The face symbols are Mississippian iconography. The symbol around the eye represents weeping and is known as an eye surround or forked eye symbol, which is well documented in scientific papers. The face also contains a distinct feature of just one eye. The symbolic missing eye could be interpreted as an injury resulting in the loss of an eye, or a birth deformity. Evident above the face is a 2-1/2 inch diameter circular depression, 1/4 inch deep, with residue stains in which this area was likely used as a mortar for grinding pigments or entheogens (plant material) for Shamanistic practices.
