Our Society Logo is a pendant showing two stylized human busts with happy expressions made from a soapstone bowl fragment. The bowl, as perhaps the pendant, dates to the Terminal Archaic period (1200-800 B.C.). This artifact comes from the Connecticut River valley of central Massachusetts and was for years in a collection at Holyoke, Massachusetts. Eventually it was transferred to the Wistariahurst Museum in Holyoke and afterwards sold at a Skinner Inc., Discovery auction.
