"Enjoying a Hookah"--single Egyptian figure
Item Number: AE092
"Enjoying a Hookah"
A familiar sight throughout the Middle East and North Africa is the ‘Hookah’. This is a single or multi-stemmed instrument for heating or vaporizing and then smoking either tobacco, flavoured tobacco, or sometimes cannabis, hashish, and even... opium. The smoke is passed through a water basin-–often glass-based--before inhalation. In the Arab world and throughout the Middle East, people smoke ‘hookahs’ as part of their culture and traditions. Social smoking is done with a single or double hose ‘hookah’ and even triple or quadruple versions on occasion. Smoking a ‘hookah’ can be done at home privately or with company in cafes which are widespread social gathering places throughout the Arab world.
