Dimensions: 25 x 8.5cm (9.8" x 3.3")
Medium to large deep swamp kauri bowl with resin inlay featuring a mosaic design in paua shell. The outer edge is rounded slightly. The timber is from Waipapakauri (the place name means 'swamp ground where the kauri grow') in the Far North of New Zealand and is a rich, deep brown. Swamp kauri from this area is estimated to be 40,000-50,000 years old. This bowl is quite heavy (over a kg in weight).
