 Additional Information:  West African pipes come in a variety of forms: simple with geometric motifs, symbolic with human and animal images. They decorate their pipes with geometric patterns. Many other pipes are made out from wood and come in variety of symbolic (human and animal) forms. Chiefs' pipes are somehow the most decorated ones. They are used by men and women to smoke tobacco. Tobacco grown in the Americas was smoked as early as the middle of the 17th century with smoking pipes based upon European models.
