So that no one would miss the point that tobacco products were sold inside, it was purchased to stand outside and advertise the shop’s wares. The carving included stylized tobacco leaves and a tobacco box held in the figure’s outstretched right hand. Carvers capitalized early on the relationship between Native Americans and the tobacco that they grew for sacred practices. Carvings of Native Americans were used by the 18th century in British tobacco shops, reflecting the growth of the transatlantic trade. With laws restricting sidewalk signs, and the decline of tobacco shops due to public health awareness, the once-ubiquitous cigar store Indian has become a rarity.

Incorporated into the whimsical creations were traditional European folk art motifs: birds, stars, and sunbursts. Scholl was proud of his work, and enjoyed showing people through the collection; in good weather, he moved some it out into his yard.

When European missionaries brought Catholicism across the ocean to the New World, they also brought with them traditional forms of religious iconography and woodcarving techniques.
