That is the famous mound at the junction of Georgia Highways 17 and 75, just 2 miles from the
Folk Pottery Museum. The bowl was housed in New York and Washington with other Smithsonian collections.
The bowl is now on special loan for display at the new Folk Pottery Museum.
The Nacoochee mound site dates from the 1400s, late in the mound-building culture of the Mississipians, making the
bowl more than 600 years old. The upper portion of the design is incised, while the lower design pattern was pressed into wet
clay with a carved wooden paddle.
