Gourd BasketĀ 

Price: $45.00 

Gourds date back to ancient times and have served many purposes. In Africa the calabashes are still used as ladles, spoons, bowls for food,and vessels for carrying water, as well as being decorative. Even when used for these utilitarian purposes, a decorative motif would be carved or burned on the surface of the calabash. These beautiful bowls are carved by hand, making each one a unique work of art. These gourds have a basket topper woven around the rim. These graceful gourds, with their ancient designs, are recreated here by widows in Kenya.
