    Beautiful, simply breathtaking, isn't it? An example of what the old european masters could do

    Be kinda a scary thought to take a match to it.
    But ya know, if I had the dinero for a bit of art like that, I'd smoke it.

    Maybe. But it would sound like a choir singing. :)

    Truly beautiful work on some of those. More a work of art than a device for smoking.

    Functional art is the pipesmokers best friend!

    Beautiful pieces! And hell yeah, I'd smoke 'em if I owned 'em!
