Another Nofolete

On our trip to Maesai this Friday I found yet another winged elephant (the Burmese side of the border is shown above, from inside Burma, looking towards Thailand, 20˚26'45.04" N, 99˚52'47.02" E looking almost due south if you're that curious). This one is a nice little bronze pipe with the wings embracing the bowl. If you look closely at it, however, the stalk of the pipe extends from below the tail (poor guy has what must be the worst case of hemorrhoids in the world), so in order to use it you are actually sucking on the elephant's anus. Is this handsome pipe actually trying to deliver a subtle anti-smoking message?
