The spoon is arrangea so as to present the pictures of the two famous explorers, Lewis and Clark, under which is gracefully placed the Lewis monument and a representation of Multnomah Falls.
In the bowl of the spoon is represented a beautifully carved picture of Sacajawea, the Indian woman who led the men over their journey. The representation is also an exact copy of the copper statue which is to be erected in Oregon in honor of this Indian woman, by the public-spirited citizens of Oregon, and unveiled at the coming Exposition.
