|Description ||A replica of the fluorite statue found buried in Mound F. |
A statue of a seated man is carved from a single piece of yellow fluorite. It was found buried under the surface of Mound F. It appears to have been placed intentionally in the location. No similar piece of carving has been found elsewhere at Angel, although similar figures have been found at other Mississippian sites. The raw stone is not native to the area and appears to have been imported from southern Illinois.
The original is on display at the Indiana University Art museum, Bloomington. The replica is at the Angel Mounds Museum and is displayed in the hands of a high status male figure.
