Default Old Style African Hookah











Now the Challenge is to make one and yes the Bowl has a down stem and the base gets water in and the end of the Gourd has a hole through which the smoke is inhaled.

Looks quite uncomfortable to smoke (although back in the day, I smoked from far less comfortable improvised hookahs).

I like the handmade clay bowl though.

Wow!
I think the form of the bowl looks like on gourd waterpipes of tonga people (Zimbabwe-Zambia) or kavango people (Namibia-Angola).
But the gourd devices like this is uses in big region including Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania.
