DescriptionDinosaur Bone Bowl
A relatively large portion of rough Dinosaur bone was the original source of this huge bowl hewn from the coveted Jurassic age material. This bowl features a flat, cut bottom allowing the piece to sit on any level surface. It has a deep basin where the well-preserved internal vascular structure has been polished showcasing the remnants of the once-living bone. The bowl exhibits hues of subtle grayish-brown and vibrant orange, as well as deep reds and greens. The center of this piece and the exterior have a beautiful polish, while the rind has been left rough to showcase the natural texture of the bone. This lapidary item is clearly an artistic bowl, but it is first and foremost a great example of fossil material. This is an uncommon presentation for Dinosaur bone making it all the more interesting. This fascinating bowl is in pristine condition and deserves to be displayed prominently with pride.
