TUBE PIPE, Goleta area, Santa Barbara, California. An attractive short, tube pipe found along the dunes of the Goleta area of Santa Barbara in the 19. This pipe was one of many stone carved artifacts uncovered in that region. The pipe has multiple abrasion scratches, minor dings and dents, all no doubt due to soil agitation.
Tube pipes were apparently used by tribal shamans to heal and to ascend into the spirit world. For the afflicted, the idea was to blow healing smoke upon a wound and to then suck up the problem.Shamans would also use these types of pipes to smoke various hallucinogenic herbs to then transcend into a world beyond our present reality. The nearby, painted hill caves of the Santa Barbara mountains are filled with strange and psychedelic. Style glyphs, no doubt the result of these spirit quest, mind adventures. A rather good condition pipe very similar to the many uncovered along coastal California over the years.
