Costa Rican wood bowl

Here is my runner-up selection for yesterday's Daily Photo theme day of "wood." I mentioned yesterday that artisans in Costa Rica make bowls and other decorative objects from the tropical hardwoods. Here is an example.

These items make excellent gifts. We bring back bowls, wood trivets, wood holders for desk items and other objects from Costa Rica for the people who work in our office in the USA.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. If you have not been there, please check out the our website this week. You are in for a treat.

This is a beautiful bowl (and nicely photographed!) Do you know what kind of wood it is?

Three Rivers,
I am sorry, but I do not know what type of wood it is. The tropical hardwoods in Costa Rica come in both light, dark and marbled colors. Some of the wood items combine several types in the same article.
