Ser Jacopo Picta Magritte (16)

Product Number: 004-006-8633

Try as I may, I've been completely unable to track down any image of the Magritte painting this design is based off of, outside of Ser Jacopo's own materials, where it translates as "The Pipes Enamored at the Moon" (1928). (With all due respect to the late Giancarlo, the title translations for the Picta series are often a little off from what the paintings are actually known by in English, having been translated to Italian, then from Italian to English.) It's a rather unusual piece, even by Magritte's standards (indeed, I haven't even seen any other Magritte variation on it or its theme) depicting several whimsically-proportioned pipes hovering (flitting?) about in the moonlight, almost moth-like. This Picta Dublin is clearly based off of the rightmost briar, a deep and full-bodied Dublin which is both the most prominent element of the painting, and the only pipe depicted whose design and proportions could actually be made into a real, functioning smoker without the shank and stem being fashioned from a multitude of separate sections.
