Hand carved Bamboo Bowl decorated with Sterling Silver and Granite base.
Lotus Arts de Vivre sources its Bamboo from China. This remarkable “Chinese Bamboo Tree” is different from most trees in that – while most trees grow steadily over a period of years, the Chinese bamboo tree doesn’t break through the ground for the first four years. Then, in the fifth year, an amazing thing happens – the tree begins to grow at an astonishing rate. In fact, in a period of just five weeks, a Chinese bamboo tree can grow to a height of 90 feet.
Bamboo was in widespread use in early China as a medium for written documents. The earliest surviving examples of such documents, written in ink on string-bound bundles of bamboo strips date from the 5th Century BC during the Warring States period. Bamboo's long life makes it a Chinese symbol of uprightness, while in India it is a symbol of friendship.
