Beautiful bowl with hand painted colourful bird inside. Perfect for keeping all your treasures. 

Paper mache craft is still celebrated in Bihar region in India. Old papers are soaked in water for a few days until they start to decompose. The excess water is then squeezed out and the soaked paper is mixed with paper, straw, cloth to form a paste. Using paste, local artists hand build various animals (like cow, tiger, bird) and other objects like plates, bowls, even lamps. Later, they are uniquely painted on the outside - first in black & white (I think they are our favourites!) then primary colours might be added. 

Measurements: 14 cm in diameter / 5 cm height

Hand built and then hand painted. Handcrafted in Bihar in India.
