This exquisitely detailed, whimsical Seahorse Bowl was designed by celebrated French Tiki Artist and Sculptor "Tiki Bai" ! In folklore the seahorse represents eternal friendship, good luck, patience and persistence. In Europe, the seahorse carried the souls of deceased sailors, providing them safe passage and protection until they reached their final destination. Each of the three sides of the bowl features a different underwater flora decoration in cream colored high relief that shows beautifully against the deep green background glaze. This piece measures about 8-1/2" wide at the widest point and each of the three seahorses measure 6-3/4" tall. The inner bowl holds about 16 ounces, so it is perfect for a very special cocktail, candy or pocket change.
