The shape of the Harmony bowl is a replica of the bowl from the Chinese Han Dynasty and is an amazing 15 inches in diameter; very difficult to duplicate today. Hence each bowl is hand made in Portugal. The red, yellow and blue "dental" marks are reminiscent of a design element used in early 18th century European porcelain. As an avid wildlife conservationist, Lynn's art depicts species from the 7 continents. An Axis deer from India, a Panda from China, a Cockatoo parrot from Australia, a Bobcat from the Americas and so on- not to mention flowers and bugs! The interior of the bowl represents wildlife from the oceans. It is a salute to the seas. From a dolphin, angel fish, sea turtle to coral reefs. This amazing bowl has 24 K burnished gold.
