Bought this for a gift. Her favorite color is dark blue and she is new on the path of Buddhism. So when I saw this modest bowl with a simple bodhi leaves in a blue gift box how could I go wrong. Love the little denim-colored cushion too. The only thing that makes this 4 stars instead of 5 is some of the bodhi leaves are smudged. But it gives the bowl character and is obviously hand painted. It is elegant and perfect for the person I am giving it to....A lovely bell tone. Just call Christy and she will be happy to ring it over the phone!Which brings me to why I am writing a review. I have bought several things online. But I have never written a review. But the attention to detail in packing is just outrageous with this company! Old school and I love it! Will be back. Hand-written note, tons of bubble wrap, and a pendant I ordered was wrapped in red paper. If anything comes broken to you from DharmaShop, blame the postman! Peace.
