Artist's Description

A hookah, also known as a waterpipe, narghile, or Qalyān is a single or multi-stemmed instrument for smoking flavored tobacco called Mu‘assel (also known as Shisha) in which the smoke is passed through a water basin (often glass based) before inhalation. The origin of the hookah is India Persia,or at a transition point between the two.The word hookah is a derivative of “huqqa”, which is what the Indians used to call it. Acording to author Cyril Elgood , who does not mention his source, it was Abul-Fath Gilani (d. 1588), a Persian physician at the Indian court of the Mughal emperor Akbar, who “first passed the smoke of tobacco through a small bowl of water to purify and cool the smoke and thus invented the hubble-bubble or hookah.
