Western Painted Wooden Bowl 26" - Hunter (87bc4)
Hand painted western Indian art wooden bowl featuring southwest Indian 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. Bowls or dough trays are used to catch corn meal as it is ground with a stone.
The rustic character of primitive painted wooden bowls add a sense of rustic beauty to create a natural atmosphere for log homes, cabins and cottages as well as any western ranch, southwest style or country decor. This carved wooden dough bowl with hand painted western Indian art measures 10.25" wide by 26.5" long.
