French Estates: Butz-Choquin Cybele Smooth Horn
Product Number: 004-003-2195
Cybele's role in her native Anatolian remains an unknown. Most of what we know of her comes through the ancient Greeks worshiping her as an exotic deity, or the Romans' later adoption of her as the Magna Mater. But what's with this pipe? Given just how exotic its shaping is, and the sweeping nature of it, I would think it was inspired by the wilder rites that came to be associated with the goddess of enigmatic origins. Definitely this is one of the stranger designs I've seen by B.C., but that said it does still sit well.
