A prehistoric Native American statue currently on display in the lobby of the McClung Museum is thought to be the female counterpart to a male figure that was named the Tennessee State Artifact in 2014. The pair appears to have been made by the same sculptor between A.D. 1250 and 1350, and the two rank among the finest prehistoric sculptures ever found in the United States. Both statues were found in the 1930s at the Sellars farm in Wilson County, Tennessee.
