The Quapaw people had the shortest sojourn in the Arkansas area of any of the three pottery cultures. The Quapaw appeared late in the period, around 1500 AD and lived in the area until historic times. The Quapaw culture is known for its beautiful painted vessels, utilizing the colors red, white, and black. This pottery was often made in effigy form, depicting animals and items in striking detail and accuracy. These exotic effigies sometimes depict dogs, deer, otters, frog, shells and even people. Quapaw pottery is considered some of the most artistic and distinct pottery of North America.
