Zoomorphic, effigy smoking pipe carved into the form of a bird (raptor?), made from a light coloured pipe stone, though darkened perhaps through proximity with cremation surface. The bird's legs are formed in relief against the column positioned to contain the bowl. The wings are set in relief against the body and the feathering and facial features are picked out with light incisions. The tail feathers are absent.
