Italian Estates: Ser Jacopo Picta Picasso Smooth with Silver (15)

Product Number: 004-006-8634

The stout, solid proportions of this Picta Picasso Billiard are made all the more so by the "paneling" of the form, which I've always felt tends to give a pipe a firmer feel. Not being familiar with the works of Pablo Picasso, I remain at a loss however as to what is being depicted on the shank's substantial silver mount. A man suddenly realizing a brick is about to fall on his face? Perhaps he's drowning in a lake, with a log cabin far in the distance? I can only wonder what it implies that the first things to spring into my mind are slapstick and a tragic, yet most likely unintentionally self-inflicted demise.
