Two stray finds from a building site in Delfzijl are connected with biblical stories. A carved ivory handle depicts the story of the fall of man from paradise. Adam and Eve are both holding an apple. At their back is a stylised flame, blocking the entrance to the Garden of Eden. A pipe bowl, shaped like a man's head, most probably refers to the story of Jonah. He tried to escape by boat from a nasty commission and was swallowed by a huge fish. He was saved by praying and promising that he would fulfil the commission God had given him. In England, however, this type of tobacco pipe is generally described as a 'Sir Walter Raleigh pipe'. According to a well-known story, the famous discoverer Raleigh was almost eaten by a crocodile. The animal disliked the taste of this heavy smoker, and spat him out. The handle and the pipe date from the 17th century.
