Are you ready to delve into the ancient mysteries of Mayan mystique? You might want to find an anthropologist for that. Fortunately, our friends at Illuminati Glass have provided the next best thing - a psychedelic journey into the heart of the jungle with the arcane powers of the Mayan Mystery Dab Rig (psychedelic journey not included).

This mystical smoking pipe is one part smoking device, one part cultural homage, and one part modern design. The base of the pipe is adorned with etched patterns, evoking traditional Mayan symbology, with a portrait of a might Mayan warrior gazing strongly out the back of the pipe. But that’s just the base - the real eye popper is the wretched goblin head sitting on top!

Now I don’t know about Mayans and goblins, myself, but then again, I’m no scholar of the unknown. I’ll leave that mysterious truth to those purveyors of forbidden knowledge, Illuminati Glass, and stick to the facts: they have brought together the aesthetic of Mayan art and modern smoking magic to make a goblin-headed, rune-adorned, showerhead percolating dab rig the likes of which the world has never seen.

Let’s look a little closer at this piece. The functionality of the Mayan Mystery dab rig is about what you’d expect from a mid-size dab rig. Fitted with a decently sized showerhead perc that sits at the center of a wide, flared chamber base, this pipe provides just enough percolation to give you a brisk hit, without holding onto your vapor for too long and making the concentrate go stale. Where this piece really shines, though, is the exacting design and care that went into its outer features. The sandblasted etchings on the base and rear of the pipe are painstakingly perfected into sharp, gorgeous patterns, and even the gnarled goblin head shows evidence of exacting perfection. Everything from the folds of the pointed ears, to the creases in the goblin’s wrinkled forehead and face, is hand detailed. The level of detail and the perfection of symmetry in this pipe is stunning. But what did you expect from a company like Illuminati Glass?

It’s easy to hold, and the flared mouthpiece makes for a cozy, easy hit. I predict that this will quickly become your new favorite piece. By default, this is a dab rig, but that’s only because Illuminati chose to deliver it with one of their high-end bangers. Technically, just by changing out the bowl or banger, any pipe can be converted from a bong to a dab rig or vice versa. Just another mystery unraveled by those fine scholars at Illuminati.
