Black and White Bowl Cover

Black and White Bowl Cover

Monks on pilgrimage in Tibet carry a food bowl, because most nomadic families have only enough bowls for family members, and one is assigned to each family member. (They rarely wash them, but instead stick to one bowl.) A travelling monk would keep his bowl in a case like this one, made of reeds an yak hair, to keep the bowl safe.

About 9 cm diameter, bowl included.
