Carved Pipe Stone Ceremonial Indian Peace Pipe Artifact
This Carved Pipe Stone Ceremonial Indian Peace Pipe Artifact is
of a very high quality. The bowl of this incredible peace pipe features
the powerful image of the mighty eagle masterfully hand carved out
of genuine Pipe Stone by Navajo artist Tom Joe. This impressive
Pipe Stone eagle bowl appears on a hand made pipe that was wrapped
in genuine Buckskin. This Peace Pipe also features plenty of genuine
feathers, trade beads, and some intricately hand stitched seed bead
work. The center of the pipe features a generous portion of long
buckskin leather fringe and a buckskin medicine bag for extra detail.
This incredible peace pipe artifact is 29" long. If you find
a pipe like this in a museum it'll sell for over a thousand dollars.
The pipe stone eagle was carved in our shop by Native American carver
Tom Joe while the rest of the peace pipe was made by an old friend
of Richard's who runs a trading post just down the street. You will
receive a one of a kind peace pipe with similar leather and bead
work as the one displayed below with a pipestone bowl from the group
pictured at the bottom.
The term Peace Pipe is a white man's term, and were called Calumets
by the Native Americans, named after Calamus...the "stalk"
or "reed." It is properly referred to as the Sacred Pipe.
The pipe bowl commonly was carved from hard wood, molded from clay
or carved from red pipestone called Catlinite. Other stones such
as Sandstone, Soapstone, hard stones such as Granite, Quartzite
and Steatite were also used. The Peace Pipe has long been known
by the White Man as a token of peace and treaties...to seal an agreement.
Probably, though no person knows for sure, the first time the "peace
pipe" term was used was when a peace treaty was being signed.
The pipe would have been used to seal the bargain and the white
man would likely have referred to it as a pipe of peace.There are
Calumets for sacred and ceremonial purposes, and public arrangements.
The Sacred Pipe is not generally used for public gatherings. Intentions
could often be told by how the stem was carved or decorated with
feathers when smoked. Both Bowl and Pipe designs may be simple or
elaborate, and may be carved from stone, horn, antler, bone or wood.
We understand the true value and nature of hand crafted Indian art.
