Story Behind the Art:
Rootwork items are carved from a species of Chinese Fir called Shan Mu, which grows abundantly in the mountains of Central China. Rootwork raw materials come from stumps left by logging operations, the removal of which allows faster re-growth of newly planted seedlings. Each gnarled stump is then transformed by skilled artisans into the gorgeous pieces.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
I ordered two for the purpose of eating our salads-it arrived today and though it was very
beautiful it was not for eating a salad-maybe a nice fruit bowl-but definitely not a salad.
The food space was sparse and not consistent in space-very odd for food to be placed
inside the bowl.
This bowl is beautifully hand-crafted. It is best used as a fruit bowl or a decorative bowl. It's not practical for use for salads or other dining purposes. However, it's so beautiful, I'm not sure why anyone would want to use it for general dining.

I bought this bowl for my son's apartment that he just moved into. He put it on the center of his coffee table.
