This peace pipe is made with a polished buffalo horn and wood pipe stem. Overall, this buffalo horn pipe is about 18" x18", including the leather hanger strap and feathers.
The buffalo horn bowl shown is representative. Coloring on individual horns will vary from solid black to black with white patches, usually at the top of the horn. (See the buffalo horns in our craft section for more examples.) The outside of the horn is polished to a high gloss shine.
The stem of this pipe is wrapped with burgandy wine suede leather and has three white rabbit fur wraps. .
Each fringe has silver beads and glass crow beads and is tipped with a silver cone. The fringes are decorated with grouse tail feathers. There are also gold and red pheasant feathers along the stem of the pipe at each fur wrap.
The buffalo symbolizes abundance. The rabbit totem is an instrument of magic and good luck. He brings success and a good attitude to all endeavors. Rabbit is also a symbol of reproduction and abundance. The lesson is to create joy and faithfulness within our friendships, and go forward with anticipation.
