World’s first luxury bathtub ‘Le Grand Queen’ from Caijou

Luxury Bathtub from Caijou

You know a Bathtub is expensive when the poster advertising it shows a naked hot chick and a naked chiseled hot guy posing in it without any clothes on and with a disinterested-going-on-constipated look on their faces. We would love to tell you that pricey bathtub covered in question here is made of gold and covered in diamonds, but we’ve got something even better than that. These particular bathtubs are crafted out of fossilized wood and semi-precious stones and wait for this- petrified wood that is apparently the same age as the dino bones on display at NY’s Museum of Natural history. Petrified wood of course is a semi-precious stone that is both elegant as well as super expensive which makes the Le Grand Queen Luxury Bathtub from Caijou more luxuriant than anything else known to man so far.

Crafted in the shape of the Indonesian “bangka” canoes, the Le Grand Queen Bathtub is designed to give users a unique perspective on the history of our planet and the wonders that the interaction of various material, life forms and elements have had on the creation of these mini wonders that we have inherited today.

The petrified wood used in making this luxury bath tub is said to be over 180-million years old- a truly stunning number. What’s even more staggering is that the super-rare material took a 200-strong team over 600,000 hours to dig in the most perilous terrain in Indonesia. Having been discovered in October 2008, the 10 ton piece of preserved wood could only be salvaged by August 2009 and the precious 3.5 ton core piece could only be shipped out to Austria by October that year.

The bathtub was designed by Simon Krapf after a whole team of master stonemasons and other experts spent a few good hundred hours polishing and milling the stone. The shaping of the bathtub itself took weeks of handcrafted perfection. Although the manufacturer refrains from giving us more details on the bathtub including its price, we expect it to not be something that non-billionaires can afford.You know a bathtub is expensive when the poster advertising it shows a naked hot chick and a naked chiseled hot guy posing in it without any clothes on and with a disinterested-going-on-constipated look on their faces.
