Kava is primarily consumed to relax without disrupting mental clarity, and is very much a drink of social function and of ceremony.

This bowl has an orientation peg carved in the bottom to ensure it always facing in the correct direction and comes with a hollowed coconut shell for scooping the liquid.

The bowl is 195 mm across, 60mm high and 620 mm in diameter approx.
