Chokwe pipe (N° 22966)

Aiming in most cases to satisfy the thirst for prestige of their owners, utilitarian objects had to be adapted to the social rank of each. This small ritual pipe has a mouthpiece carved with a head referring to the ancestors of the clan. Tobacco use was widespread among the Chokwe, and smoking was an integral part of offerings to ajimu spirits
Beautiful patina lustrous by use, cracks. Peacefully settled in eastern Angola until the 16th century, the Chokwé were then subjected to the Lunda empire from which they inherited a new hierarchical system and the sacredness of power. br>
