  • Hand pipe. Height: approx. 2.5" to 3"
  • The base of the pipe is made from tagua nut (Vegetable Ivory). Not even one leaf of the tree is harmed in harvesting tagua. 100% SUSTAINABLE!
  • The artist formed the crocodile by hand using an organic substance extracted from TREE SAP.

In some Andean cultures, the crocodile was associated with water, fertility, and the underworld. The Inca civilization, which dominated much of the Andes from the 13th to the 16th century, believed that the god Viracocha had created the world and all its creatures, including the crocodile, which was considered a powerful symbol of strength and longevity. Overall, crocodiles played an important role in Andean culture and were revered for their power and significance.

Tagua nuts have been a popular material for crafting jewelry and other decorative items for generations. These nuts are incredibly hard, similar to an elephant's tusk, but unlike ivory, they are biodegradable when disposed of. The harvesting of tagua nuts is also sustainable, as not a single leaf is harmed in the process. In fact, a single Tagua tree can produce as much vegetable ivory in a year as one female elephant, making it a responsible and eco-friendly choice for artisanal creations.
