PhotoHunt #78: Curvy

Among the most beautiful and enigmatic of all prehistoric Indian remains is a group of objects which are called slate artifacts or merely slate. Slate artifacts such as pendants and gorgets have long been the most popular of all prehistoric Indian relics among collectors. The actual function of these slate pendants is not known and only through archaeological investigation can their true purpose be revealed. The three slate pieces pictured above (left to right) Keyhole pendant, Logan County, Ohio; Keyhole pendant, Ashland County, Ohio; Pentagonal pendant, Wood County, Ohio., have convex ends and concave sides making then the perfect fit for this weeks PhotoHunt: curvey
