"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." This quote from the Dalai Lama is carved on the back of this botanically fine gourd.

Blue speaks to the infinity of sky. The Dalai Lama is rendered with acrylic paint and textured highlights. An amber rhinestone sparkles from the right eye when light strikes it just so. Both lenses feature the Om. His signature is subtle across the bottom of his garment.

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. Hand-painted post consumer gift bag included, with post consumer tissue and a gourd sheet explaining humankind's relationship with gourds over time.

Domestic priority mail shipping included in price.
