A common practice in burial ceremonies was to ceremonially "kill" objects by breaking them and placing them in a crematory fire. This Raven Pipe was originally carved from a light tan pipestone. When it was "killed," some portions of it must have fallen outside the cremation fire. Fire burns pipestone a shiny black, so there are differen colors now that the pipe has been reassembled.
