Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

Smoke gets in your Eyes!

A beautiful song taken a little literally by this neat little Naga Chillum Pipe!

Carved out of animal bone this pipe from a Naga tribe portrays the image of a human face that appears to be a little too blissful … probably the outcome of some herbal smoke!

Meeting this blissful face in my shelves after many moons, reminded me of the afternoon when I chatted with a group of Naga men in Kisama village while they shared a smoke from a bamboo pipe similar to this one and posed for my camera!

Good days those!!
