This art is made from a real, natural dried gourd. Be sure to see the photo of a gourd growing in the garden before it is dried for artistic use. Once dried it will last as long as a piece of wood.
This gourd is not meant to hold water or food. It may be used as a vessel for a dried arrangement, or just to enjoy like any other piece of artwork.
Please display away from direct sunlight. UV protectant sealer is applied to help prevent this, but it should be treated like any piece of valuable art.
