A friend of my Wife’s wanted a gift bowl for her friend in Arizona and wanted an Indian motif. So drawing on the inspiration of Ray Allen, I came up with this design. Too many woods to mention all but the base is Black Mesquite, the rim is So. American Rosewood and the feature ring includes maple, wenge, bloodwood and ebony. The Turquoise rounds are Inlace poured in place. Bowl is approx. 7 1/2 in. dia and about 4 1/2 inches high. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Updated picture of side on per request.

Erwin, I’ve stopped counting pieces on my work – just to many to keep count of but suffice to say, well over 200 in this piece of art.
