Loong 龍

Loong, the Chinese Dragon.
I enjoyed the energy that work like this transmits to me. I have always loved dragons and I like the symbolism of positivity, luck and wisdom with which they are associated in the East. As luck would have it, I, born in the year of the dragon, made this pipe in the year of the wooden dragon! Sounds cool.
Pipe: Mimmo briar, with antlers made of buffalo horn.
Stem: German ebonite with abalone dots.
Box: handmade by me in cherry wood and padouk, with a dragon head engraving taken from my original preparatory sketch for the pipe.
Of course, this pipe as been shipped to China.
