I'm normally not a big fan of the poker, but this is one fantastic interpretation of the shape by Alexey Kharlamov .....

I have not seen his lizard pipe, but I did see his zipper pipe. I am almost afraid to ask about the lizard!Laughing

Can I just pawn a lung instead of a kidney? I have 2 lungs, and could probably get by on just one. Laughing

Pawn one! I'm going to have to sell several organs.
Anybody want a good used Kidney, only kicked a couple of times.
How about a nice left Lung, low mileage, only smoked on days that start with the letter N.

Great artistic endeavour.

But not something that I'd buy to smoke.

And I only get pipes I can and will smoke.................

Remarkable craftmanship but I can't imagine wanting to smoke something like that. No

I love it. It makes me smile. I'm not sure I'd smoke it, however.

The carving is nicely done -- no question.

The engraving appears to have been done with a laser engraver.

Conceptually it may be unique but its weak.  Who'd try to drive a pencil through a stack of Benjamins?  At best it is outsider art.

Now if you could put it on a fraser and mass produce them at a low price, it'd make a nice, inexpensive gag gift in some non-pipe shops?  Somewhat beats bringing tee-shirts back for friends from your vacation.  It kitchy enough to qualify as vacation souvenirs.

And, I think it just might have some trouble with passing the pipe cleaner test.

Thinking about it, I'll pass.  Even mentioning to my banker would wipe out my credit score.  Tell my doctor and there would be an involuntary commitment.

Yeah, way over my head design-wise. I gotta respect the talent it took to make that. I wonder what statement he was making with it.

I think it was along the lines of: Somebody send me $1595.00

I see it as little more than a gimmick. I am guessing a $10K carving machine and a laser engraver. I am not saying that to denigrate. He does possess a talent. But its is more along the lines of Warhol's later works doing something that's past its original impact.

I saw that last week and it made me smile. I would be quite unhappy with myself if I snapped off that pencil point....
