So what is a "Chillum"? 
Holy men have been smoking from Chillums for thousands of years and the spiritual meaning of this is comparable to the drinking of red wine by Catholics. In some cultures, like in traditional rural India, the use of a chillum is restricted to the men only and during holy events. When it is being used in these traditional events, the term “Boom Shankar” is said as the lit pipe is elevated towards the forehead. This is a form of an invitation for the Hindu god Shiva to part-take in this holy offering.

So there's your history lesson for the day....Boom Shankar!

*All of my ceramics are kiln fired to nearly 2000 degrees and painted with non-toxic and lead free glazes. They're handpainted with an ultra-fine brush to acheive the highest detail as well as a ceramic pencil to show the sketched look. The designs are then fired again with a clear, glossy glaze.
