Mapuche Stone Tobacco Smoking Pipe
Item Details
Description
Pre-Columbian, Northern Chile, Mapuche people, ca. 1500 CE. A handsome pipe carved from a single piece of dark volcanic stone, with a long boat-like body and a raised central cylindrical chamber. This style was popular for ritual pipe smoking in the ancient Andes. In addition, scholars believe that pipes like this example were offered as gifts or traded between different cultural groups throughout ancient Chile, as styles made in different regions have been found far from their origins. Size: 8.8" L x 1.125" W x 1" H (22.4 cm x 2.9 cm x 2.5 cm); 2.4" H (6.1 cm) on included custom stand.

Provenance: private New York, New York, USA collection; ex-Artemis Gallery; ex-private Hawaii, USA collection; ex-private Bettina Schwimmer collection, Chicago, Illinois, USA, collected from 1955 to 2006

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
