AKB Meerschaum: Carved Wise Man in Dragon Claw (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-0982
For years the old man flaunted his wisdom to the rest of the village, offering sage advice, sometimes without request, to residents young and old. His reputation quickly spread to the neighboring mountains to the east, from whence a dragon rose one day to test his acumen first hand.
The old man, however, having such unparalleled foresight, was not caught unawares, but instead removed his own head to offer as a gift to the flying serpent, thus sparing the village from unnecessary gouts of fire and draconic fury. The dragon accepted this favor and fled back to its lair with the old man's head gripped in its mighty vise.
It was only later that the beast realized the boon for the bane it was. The wise man had, by some manner of dark magic, kept his wits if not his head — beleaguering the scaled, winged serpent with suggestions and cryptic riddles and binding it eternally to the mountain until his wisdom ran dry.- Andrew Wike
