Koi Fish Symbolism
Many of the attributes of the koi symbolize several lessons and even trials individuals often encounter in life. The koi fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream. Some of the characteristics associated with the koi include:
These bowls/trays are carved from mango trees grown in Thailand. The mango tree bears fruit for around 40 years and is then cut down by farmers to make room for new seedlings. It is then reclaimed by local craftsmen and hand carved into beautiful shapes, furniture, art and also these bowls which I then add my own art to. Eco-friendly and beautiful! Use them to serve food, hold your keys or remotes or purely as decoration.
The measurements are approximately: 14 L, 8" W, 3" H. Please note that each bowl/tray is unique and will vary slightly in size and shape. This live edged bowl comes in an oval shape and the leaf style shape shown in the last 2 photos. Please choose one at checkout or I will choose based on style availability.
I also do custom orders, so if you come up with an idea you would like to have done let me know!
