Ceremonial pipe
« on: January 11, 2017, 08:29:07 am »
Wolf watcher may get on later and add a little more history about this beautiful pipe, but here are the basics. Stem is made from diamond willow filled with inlace granules to add color. Mouth piece and bowl made from catlinite. Scabbard is from buffaloe leather and decorated with turkey beard, mastodon ivory arrowhead, elk ivories, turquoise conchos and beaded star by Crow Indian.

What an amazing gift, and I'm honored to own it. Thank you Joe!









P.S. My daughter was all smiles when she opened her little surprise. She loves it and even wore it to school the next day!
