Southwest Stained Wooden Dough Bowl 40" (b55)
This is a rustic wooden dough bowl or trencher bowl made by the Tarahumara Indians. Wooden Indian dough bowls or trenchers are carved by hand from solid wood. Indian bowls are made by rough cutting with an axe. The carved wooden dough bowls are shaped and further worked with a machete or large knife. This traditional western Indian bowl was rough sanded and stained to a rustic finish.
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. The rustic character of primitive stained wooden bowls adds a sense of rustic beauty to create a natural atmosphere for southwest style, cabins or cottages and well and ranch or country style and western decor. This large wooden dough bowl works well as a wall or table decoration, flower planter, fruit bowl or for various western art and southwest or Indian craft projects. Measures approximately 10"-12" wide, 38"-40" long, each is unique.
