Split Twig Tri Color Cap
Split Twig Figurines were first recognized in Grand Canyon in 1933. The figurines are made from a single twig, usually, willow that is split down the middle and folded into the animal shape. Some of these figures are pierced with sticks or spears and may have horns or antlers. The figures are believed to be of bighorn sheep or possibly mule deer but their exact function is unknown. Because most of the figurines were found in remote, uninhabited caves, carefully placed under rock cairns, archaeologists believe they were ceremonial in nature to the Archaic hunting and gathering culture that lived in this area during the Paleoindian Period between 11,500 B.P. (before present) and 3,000 years ago.
