Even without the benefit of length, width and height measurements, or even a description gushing about a gargantuan size, when one sees a rusticated pipe that weighs 260 grams, you know that you are considering one very large pipe. Any Ardor that wears a Giant stamp will be humongous but the Roveras seem to become even a little more generous when it comes to their sitter shapes, such as the massive Urano bent Apple which is now on your screen. One of the many beauties of the Ardor Giant is that no sense of intuitive proportion is ever sacrificed on the altar of size. Whether this composition was scaled to the equivalent of a Dunhill Group 1, or left with this light-bending mass you would be the owner of a superlative bent Apple.
