Today’s animation is a pipe bowl in the shape of a bearded man. The pipe bowl was manufactured at the Pamplin Pipe Factory, a site located in Appomattox County, Virginia, and is in the archaeological collections maintained by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. It is listed as an R. E. Lee pipe, but more closely resembles Stonewall Jackson. A printed version was made with a MakerBot Replicator.
