    Agate; carving, polishing

    7.6 x 25.4 x 20.3 cm

    Carved from fine quality, translucent Brazilian brown-and-white banded agate, the bowl follows the natural contours of the original agate boulder, with undulating lip, and distinct brown and white patterning, raised on a small foot. Such large agate bowls are now rare to find and the craft of carving them has been nearly lost.
