They also functioned as drinking vessels. They symbolized the emptying of the Sufi’s ego through the renunciation of worldly goods and aspirations. The bowls were produced in a variety of media and were held or hung from the shoulder by metal chains. The earliest examples date to the thirteenth or fourteenth century, and their form may have been derived from crescent- and boat-shaped wine bowls made in pre-Islamic Iran.This example is larger than most and shows it's wear. The bowl is suspended by a chain which is fixed to the bowl by means of two brass loops. Condition: GOOD, Material: wooden
