Beautifully handcrafted Tepis for administering rapé. Due to the handmade nature, the Tepis may vary slightly.
Each Tepi is unique in that the seed bead colours vary. The pattern is always the same.
This is probably one of the most intricate and colourful tepi’s we have ever had. There’s so much detail on it it’s hard to know where to start to describe it!
The pipe is made from crocodile bone and has colourful Shipibo seed bead decoration for healing and protection and porcupine quills which really add to the look! Each tepi is also decorated with a piece of Ayahuasca.
Ayahuasca vine is a powerful plant medicine that has been used by indigenous communities in South America for centuries for its psychoactive properties. Ayahuasca is seen as a tool for personal and spiritual growth, helping individuals to connect with their inner selves, the natural world, and the divine.
Each Tepi has a seed bead Shipibo pattern for protection, the colours are bright and really make the tepi come alive.
Porcupine represents defense, protection, and shielding. The Porcupine is a liaison to the Spirit realm, particularly for warriors; the tribe admired the Porcupine’s defense mechanism and believed the Spirit Animal could bridge the gap between tribal members and the Divine.
Crocodile is a powerful animal that is often seen as a symbol of strength, courage, and survival in many cultures. As a power animal, crocodile can help you tap into your primal instincts and connect with your inner power. It represents the ability to adapt to any situation and overcome obstacles with ease. Crocodile energy can also help you become more assertive, confident, and fearless in your life. Whether you’re facing a difficult challenge or seeking to tap into your inner strength, the crocodile can be a valuable ally and guide.
