A dragon-like beast painted on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River was first discovered and recorded during exploration of the Mississippi River in 1673 by Father Jacques Marquette. Although the original Native American painting of the Piasa Bird is gone, a replica is perched high atop the bluffs at Piasa Park.
