Each Tepi is unique in that the seed beed colors 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 tepi is formed with Bloodwood, and the side that you blow through is made of bone.
The receiving side is made from bloodwood and has lots of crushed Chrysocolla in a beautiful ornate design, along with a piece of Ayahausca and Tigers Eye.
The pipe has colourful Shipibo seed bead decoration for healing and protection and porcupine quills which really add to the look!
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.
Chrysocolla crystal healing properties help to purify energy fields, which increases your capacity to love, the best medicine for healing. Chrysocolla is a rock star for empowering feminine energy in men and women because it’s deeply connected to the vibration of the earth, which vibrates with the purest energy of love.
It also opens the throat chakra, which boosts clear communication and self-expression by drawing negativity from the body. Whatever challenge you’re facing, whether it’s a breakup or job loss, the stone calms emotions so you can heal and move on with your life instead of dwelling on past mistakes. This stone clears the mind of distracting thoughts and guides us toward higher consciousness.
These items are completely handmade by a family of the Shipibo tribe, in the Amazon jungle of Peru. The items they make are always of high quality and completely unique. I am committed to giving more than a fair trade price for each item made. This is a great way for us all to support the indigenous communities of the world whilst providing a way for tribes to hold onto their traditions
