PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - People visiting one of New York City’s world-renowned museums can now catch a glimpse of an artifact that belongs to South Dakota’s Cultural Heritage Center.

South Dakota’s Sioux Horse Effigy is being showcased at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of an exhibition of Plains Indians masterworks.

“The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky” includes more than 130 works of art from 57 European, Canadian and American institutions as well as private collections. Featured works range from a 2,000-year-old human-effigy stone pipe to contemporary paintings, photographs and a video-installation piece.

The exhibit, which was previously displayed in Paris, will be in New York City through May 10.

The effigy is expected to return to the Heritage Center in Pierre in October.
