The outside of the bowl depicts the 8 Auspicious Symbols. In Buddhist legend, the 8 symbols represent offerings the gods made to the Buddha after his enlightenment. It is believed that each of these symbols have powers to bring blessings for which people include these in paintings, textiles, homes, and wherever else possible.
