    XIXth century
    H. 8,1 ; Length : 15,8 cm

    The pipe bowl is in catlinite in the shape of an "L" with a slightly flared chimney and a slightly darker patina.

    The pipe is linked to a ritual practice. Smoking the pipe could be an occasion to commemorate an event, inaugurate a facility or celebrate an important event.
    It is said that the smoke went up to the sky where the Great Creator is. The pipes were kept in long skin bags decorated with quill or beading.
