Map definitely. Very cool looking bowl. Does the inside have the same figuring? Nice use for a beautiful piece of wood.

Yes, the spalting carries through in basically the same pattern on the inside

I’ll see about more pictures later on

Looks like another map to me. I would like to get my hands on some wood like that to work with. Great job

Easily recognizable as the United States of Spalta in the deciduous hemisphere. Nice bowl. Thanks for sharing.
