Not entirely sure, but my mother says it is likely Cherokee.

Also I would like to invite you to come and visit my gallery.  I am also a published author and my book Eden Symbiotic is available on Amazon.com in both paperback book and in Kindle.

Here is the synopsis:

Molly Langley willingly shares her life and body with a symbiotic life form on a distant planet called Eden. Her world is discovered one seemingly ordinary morning by a ship of explorers from Earth that mistakenly believe that they had discovered a lost human colony. This chance meeting leads to a revealing of Earth’s hidden history and strange connection to Molly’s home world and creates an open alliance between Earth and Eden. This same chance encounter also exposes Molly, her family and her world to an unexpected danger from a failing company that is exploiting another alien race called the Ozbeen who had inadvertently created Shining Ones a few thousand years ago. Molly and three others of her family, all of which are willing hosts to the juvenile larvae of the Shining Ones, are captured and taken to a planet of unknown name and location to extract the DNA of their symbionts. In order for them to be able to return home, Molly and her family must join forces with a group of escaped prisoners, spies and rebels and find a way to bring down the shield that is trapping on the planet, telepath home to let their people know where they are so her people can bring down the company once and for all. 

My book is about nine dollars on Amazon Prime.  Come and check it out, bring home a copy today!

Okay, I will remember that.  My mother rescued them from a hair shop that was using them as door stops.  They didn't know or care about what they had.

wow that is so sad... I heard of a few other items treated as doorstops as well, like a copper dagger in England.

Ignorance  is not bliss, especially when it comes to things like treasures from the past.  They have a story to tell if anyone would take the time to learn it.  If people knew the true value of what they find, they might try to take better care of old artifacts.

Nerd!  Just like me!  I love it!  :D  Maybe for a fun project you could look up other pipes similar to the ones I drew here and see if you could learn a bit more about their history and then you can tell me about it.  Art, science, anthropology, some histories, I remember most of what I read and see on TV pretty much forever.  I don't have time to research them myself, I have a ton of homework I have to do for my psychology class.  But I would be interested in what you tell me.  Like stuff like that.

The pipes belong to my mother, she rescued them from various shops. One place that did hair was using a pipe as a door stop! Apparently they didn't know what they had and Mom managed to convince them to sell it to her. I think we still have it somewhere in our living room. I was recording them in her journal for a while as a favor to her in case they were lost or stolen. I am way behind on that favor, she has more than I have managed to keep up with. Maybe later I will finish that project.

Good to know you would know the difference between a Mound Builder Pipe and a door stop! Art that managed to survive that long deserves to be respected.

ooo, excellent statement! love it. thank you. I know a little bit about a lot fo things, but that's just my nature. i don't have the stamina to do long drawn out things, even my fanfic, i have to just get away so often, you know, becuase my talent comes in spurts. There's times when you SHOUld push it, and times when you should rest. I have learned to -usually- know the difference ,so I'm lucky.

I am doing chores, homework and then drawing. Nothing origial unfortunately, but great practice for skin tones and perspectives. I might post them here when I am done. I am currently working on Jorgan Von Strangle, it is not turning out as well as I would have liked, but it's not all bad.
