The pipes mouth hole was cleverly situated in the effigys mouth area, providing a tube-like area for inhalation. The smoke hole is further up just in front of the dorsal fin. Many abrasion streaks, dings and scratches--all from soil movement/rocks--are evident on the piece. It was carved from a soft brown stone into this wonderful effigy of a dolphin, very similar to those that annually migrate off the coast of the island.In all, a wonderful find clearly carved in prehistory by a master observer of the marine life surrounding Catalina Island.
