The first thing I noticed about this meerschaum was the case, as immense as an Ardor Giant. Opening it up, the reason for this great size became obvious: this is a particularly large and detailed figural carving, and one of a man sporting what you might call a mid-life crisis grade turban at that. Loaded with bells and whistles (or more to the point, braided cords, tassels, and feathers, this fellow is dressed to impress in as conspicuous a manner as possible. Fitting to this theme of total self-indulgence, this meerschaum also happens to sport one of the deepest chambers I've come across in a while.
