“Rice” is such an essential and important staple of Asian cultures, it would be unimaginable to comprehend “life” without it! And especially the ornate Oriental designs of the bowl, resonates with very memories of the both “past” and “present” for Chinese-folks (such as myself), this is such an amazing representation of both an art toy collectible and heritage, all in an adorable cute bowl of toy-rice LOL
And By The ToyGawds if there were an entire “family” of Little and “Big” Rice bowls to be had, folks’ll truck them away in the family-pack-load! LOL
