Smooth Porpoise with Copper Ring

Product Number: 002-527-0066

Growing up in the American Southwest, I came to bear a great fondness for Native American drawings and pottery. My parents have all sorts of examples strewn across the mantles and half-walls of their home, of clay sculptures in Hopi and Navajo style depicting buffalo, bear and elk. Although J&J have titled this shape as a Porpoise, the profile of this pipe, with its great arching back, forward thrusting nose and two broad feet, reminds me of one particular piece above the hearth. The sculpture depicts a mighty buffalo just beginning to slump in the throes of death, a proud spear jutting from its back. I find the similarity of these two forms to be quite striking, although I don't recall the statue in my parents' home having such nice grain!
