BOX: the colors have darkened since the pics were taken many years ago so it looks like just cocobolo over yellowheart but actually the top part is cocobolo sided by wenge and the bottom is yellowheart sided by prima vera.
flaws/issues: none. LATER: there has been some darkening of some of the woods since the pics were taken many years ago and the visual impact of the bowl is noticeably reduced (but still very pretty) so I have reduced the price from $140 to $95
comments: VERY nice pleasant curved shape to this one. The mahogany in views 3 and 7 is nicely chatoyant as is the base, and the wood is excellent throughout the bowl.
