Ceremonial drinking bowl 3D Model
Birch, carved and painted, late 19th century, Norway. Museum no. W.104-1926.
The pattern of this ceremonial drinking bowl–brightly painted and carved with horse-head handles has been traditional in Norway since Medieval times. The original use of a bowl like this may have been for a prehistoric ceremony that involved the sacrifice of horses, but the bowls continued to be made for centuries. The bowl, or kasa, is carved from a single block of birch, as all such pieces were. The revival of interest in Norwegian folk art in the late 19th century made such bowls highly collectible, and new ones, such as this one, were also made.
