There are many reasons to smoke during ceremonies, one element is praying to your ancestors, asking for guidance and a companion to guide you through the trials of life.
Native American artist Jim Little Wounded carves this beautiful tamper to commemorate the relationship between the one who prays and who you are praying to.
Jim uses a single piece of wood, he carves the twist to represent the wind, he adds the image of a buffalo that provides everything and then the companion, that looks on with watchful eyes.
Jim finishes the decoration of the tamper with dyed porcupine quills, glass beads and metal bells.
