"With this salt I am shaking the foundations of the (British) Empire." So said the Mahatma. The icon of peaceful resistance views the world through peace symbol bottle cap lenses.

Orange was his favorite color. Mine too! Orange is full of symbolism (happiness, love, kinship) and just plain uplifting. The salt quote is carved on the back of the gourd. The Mahatma wears a pin with NaCl (chemistry speak for salt) on it. An amber rhinestone sparkles from the right eye when light strikes it just so.

Gourd is approximately 8.5 inches across and 4 inches front to back.

I like to keep things simple. A hole has been drilled on the back of the gourd. Simply drive a nail or screw into the wall, line the hole up with the head of the nail and slip the gourd over it.

Ambient light can produce lovely shadows on the wall from the gourd.

USA priority mail/insurance included. If this is a gift, let me know via check out message, and I'll include at no extra cost, a hand-painted post-consumer (recycled) gift bag with sturdy handles, post-consumer tissue and a gourd sheet explaining humankind's relationship with gourds over time.

Just the best darn artsy type I ever came up against! Saving my bacon with an emergency talisman for facing the maniacs in the metropole, and being understanding and comforting and delivering the PERFECT thing... on short notice even! Thank you SO much!

Fabulous! Words can't express how thrilled I was to get your box. Pictures rarely do justice to a piece, they just can't capture the color and texture. I love, love, love it. Truly unique and beautiful. Thank your dad for the extras (made my day as well).

Really speaks to those moments when your whole heart is in something... those tears... painful, yes, but extremely beautiful and important and transcendent too. I'm really crazy for these buttons, and so happy to buy them from someone so nice.
