Tree 7mm Bong Description
Made from 7mm thick borosilicate glass layered with hand painted clay, this tree bong is made to stand the test of time, inspired by the gnarled Methuselah pine—the oldest tree in the world aged 4,853 years old. According to its rings, this ancient tree weathered more than a millennium of storms before work on the Great Pyramid of Giza even began. This is remarkable considering that the dawn of civilization rose between 4000 and 3000 B.C.E.
It’s safe to say, the bristlecone pine has seen it all. So as a testament to its stoicism and wisdom is the All Seeing Tree Bong. Beautifully sculpted with the fissures of bark and stubs revealing its rings, this piece features a calming palette of earth tones from rich browns to moss green. But above all, the realistic eyes embedded throughout the textured bark is what truly captivates the beholder.
And what’s startling is the new research into plant vision. Take University of London microbiologist Conrad Mullineaux who said, “cyanobacteria use the entire cell body as a lens to focus an image of the light source at the cell membrane, as in the retina of an animal eye.” Put another way, plants don’t have eyes but can “see” different wavelengths of light. Just check out the Scientific American, the Smithsonian and the mounting body of research. While most people will roll their eyes at the idea of an all seeing tree, the Methuselah’s mere existence is astonishing. It has achieved everlasting life, surviving thousands of years while us mere humans are still chasing immortality, lucky if we reach our centennial.
What’s more, the first trees appeared more than 360 years ago. So perhaps this humble tree has accumulated years of wisdom beyond the limits of its own rings, an intelligence passed from one seed to another over the relentless passage of time. So if you’re looking for a thick glass bong that stands the test of time, this is it. Clocking in at over two pounds you now have your very own Methuselah for your coffee table, one that eyes you every time you take a hit.
Just imagine. You break up the bud between your fingers, the scent of pine washes over you. You then proceed to pack a generous bowl of herb into the round bong slide. Its three marble embellishments pair beautifully with the fissures of the bark, adding another element of texture. You breathe in from the ribbed mouthpiece of this 7mm glass bong and can hear the diffused downstem at work. The smoke thickens within the chamber as the bubbling peaks and subsides before you finally take a massive hit. The unblinking gaze of the 7mm bong seems to come to life. Naturally, you begin to wonder if there’s more to these ancient organisms than first meets the eye.
