Hand painted western bowl featuring a hand painted work of art. This is a unique one-of-a-kind piece. Southwestern wooden dough bowls and rawhide laced western bowls are authentic Native American bowls made by the Tarahumara Indians. Wooden Indian dough bowls or trenchers are carved by hand from native yellow pine and begin as a piece of a downed tree trunk.
The Indian log bowls are made by splitting the trunk in half lengthwise then rough cut with an axe. The carved wooden dough bowls are shaped and further worked with a machete or large knife. These traditional southwest Indian bowls have a round bottom and are rough sanded to a rustic finish. They sometimes don't sit straight and may not be suitable for food preparation in unfinished or stained condition. Dough bowls are used by the Tarahumara Indian people but are sold for decoration. Bowls or dough trays are used to catch corn meal as it is ground with a stone.
