Turtle-Bird Pipe

From Tommy Hudson:

Nice juxtaposition of turtle (Lowerworld) and bird (Upperworld), in a pipe. Native tobacco is much stronger than today's tobacco, so after fasting and long periods of dancing, the practitioner can have hallucinations while smoking this type. The ritual practice is still carried out in western America and central and southern America.
