Tobacco was introduced to New Guinea by Europeans, three or four centuries ago.This particular smoking pipe is a long bamboo tube with an animal design with cowrie shell eyes. Most have geometric designs, but some depict spirit-figures and faces similar to those found on drums and on men's bark belts. Each pipe made is one-of-a kind due to the tribe and man who carves and decorates it. This pipe is unique and would be interesting in your home or your office.
