Pipe bowl, unfinished, of argillite, crudely carved with a large raven surmounting a human figure, the head of which rises beneath the beak; on the back of the raven/pipe is a second figure, the head raised against the pipe bowl, holding a bird. The formlines are simply developed, and the treatment of the ees, and the two human heads suggested a noon-Haida origin.
