Turkish Estates: Kudret Meerschaum Pegasus (with Tamper) (with Case) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-4541

The winged horse that came to exist from the blood of the Gorgon Medusa as she was being beheaded by the hero Perseus in Greek mythology is represented in this meerschaum rendering from Turkish carver Kudret. Pegasus, in this iteration, seems to be hanging out with a happy woman, the details of which are just stunning. The horse was a servant of Zeus, naturally and we all know of HIS reputation with women. Continuing that allegory, what could be interpreted as a dome, signifying heaven and sky, is this pipe's removable cap. Pegasus was said to be able to breach the realm between being mortal and immortality, after all. At the opposite end off this lengthy pipe is a beautiful, acrylic stem of variegated orange and cream colors, pairing well with the light stain covering this piece, finished to resemble the onset of patination.
