This smoking pipe bowl was recovered from the Thomson-Walker archaeological site in Simcoe County, Ontario. Occupied during the second quarter of the seventeenth century, the site was a palisaded Huron-Wendat village containing 20-30 longhouses.

Similar to other Iroquoian effigy pipes, this pipe mimics the shape of a human head. This general type is often referred to as the "pinched face" style. The effigy face looked back at the smoker.
