The moon jumped over the cow.
When Zeus covered the earth with clouds to hide his affair with the Princess Io from his wife Hera, little did he know his paramour would become the stuff of legend. First Zeus transformed the pretty princess into a white cow when Hera wasn’t fooled by the global cloudy day. Then after wandering the world for a golden age, she was transformed back into a woman and bore many children until she passed from this realm.
A couple of millennia later, Io was reborn again as a moon forever in a dance with Jupiter as they swing around the Sun, swaying to the music of the spheres. Her latest transformation into a post-modern piece of smokable art by Tokyo Smokes further propels the Io tale into the 21st century.
This Io is a limited edition 3D printed water pipe (only 5 made!), created in partnership with acclaimed designed studio Partisans. The black porcelain and stainless steel pipes are not only high-tech art pieces, but the next incarnations of a legend.
