Pioro Tou (Made from “tou” tree)

Regular price $70.00 $0.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This tribal pipe was hand-carved in an island tree "tou" (oceanic walnut). It displays an ancient Marquesan symbol “etua” (divinity) in the center. 

With a length of 7,5 cm – this exotic beauty is a perfect size to fit inside a pocket.

Fun fact: one of the first Western practices adopted by Marquesans was the cultivation and smoking of tobacco. Soon, pipes became valuable objects that, along with tobacco containers made from bamboo or small coconuts, were occasionally buried with their owners. In the past, men and women were not permitted to smoke together. In some circumstances, a woman could not smoke a pipe belonging to a man – while a man could smoke a pipe belonging to a woman. However, in these modern times, that’s not the case anymore. Everyone is free to share and enjoy a good pipe.
