Official State Artifact of Ohio
Ohio designated "The Adena Pipe" as the official state artifact in 2013 (Ohio also recognizes an official prehistoric monument). Found in the Adena burial mound near Chillicothe, Ohio, the pipe was created by an artisan of the Adena people about 2,000 years ago. All Cultural Heritage Symbols
Made of Ohio pipestone, the Adena pipe is in the shape of a standing man wearing large ear ornaments, a loincloth with a feather bustle in the back, and a hairdo typical of a high-ranking individual. The Adena pipe is on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio.
