A Primitive Turned Bowl from the Swat Valley

Buy now

The upper Swat valley in the mountain region of Pakistan has one of the most remarkable cultures in the Islamic world. The mountains have long provided the raw material most important to Swat culture…which is wood. Arts and crafts have always been a way of life, those traditions live on today.

The skills are there in this beautifully turned hardwood bowl, with a small pedestal at the base. The decorative rings are quite pronounced. The colour is deep beautiful chestnut. It has a soul!

Diameter 27cm x Height 11.5cm
