Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is an importand and valuable souvenir owned by the female soldier used during her participation in the resistance war against the Americans.

History of the Object
The pipe is the souvenir from her militia colleague, who was a friend and now her husband, Hồ Xuân Tiêm. He made it by himself and gave it to her as a present in 1964. According to the Pa-ko’s customs, both men and women smoke a pipe and when a man gives a pipe to a woman, it means that he would like to express his feeling of love for her and wants to propose.She often used it in the morning so that she was energetic in taking part in the battles against American enemies. She took the pipe with her while she served in the A Luoi guerilla group during the fierce, successful battles at Bình Trị Thiên. The tube broke in 1968, so she did not use it any more but she stored it away carefully. The pipe is the souvenir of her love during the war and it reminds her of her colleagues in the A Luoi’s militia and fearless battles.
