10 x 5" wood and gourd (pipe); 8 x 4" wood (vessle); 16 x 8" hemp (bag)
The pipe and vessel most closely resemble examples from the Kuba people around modern-day D.R.C. and the bag may not be related to the pipe and vessel but were kept inside the bag. The pipe has carved wooden heads at the mouthpiece and protruding from the sides of the gourd; the bowl and head carvings are attached to the gourd with wire and made air-tight with tar. The lidded vessel has surface carvings, a handle, carved figures (on handle and lid) and a tight-fitting lid - similar to tobacco and hemp containers; it contains a red dusty residue.
