This sculptural form is actually a 19th century pipe made from a special type of bamboo that bulges between growth lines like a “Buddha's belly”. When it was made, smoking out of bamboo pipes was a popular pastime in China that some physicians also prescribed as a remedy for malaria, colds, and other disorders.
