Hand-Carved Sandalwood Bowl with Bone Inlay Handles
A handmade African Sandalwood bowl with handles in a rough-hewn style. A wide band of contrasting sapwood lends a well-chosen symmetry to the overt rusticity of the traditional design. The handles are notched to accommodate the inset bone accents, zebra-striped through a tradition batik-style dyeing process. The bowl rests securely on a flat foot. Unsigned.
Condition: Excellent original condition; hand-carved item has visible chisel marks at foot and handle.
Dimensions: 8” width including handles x 5.5” depth x 2.25” height; interior bowl diameter is 5.25”
