    What do coconuts have to do with ocean art, you ask? Well, coconuts grow on trees near the ocean (I had to look that up because I wasn’t sure if it was true in real life or only in cartoons), and you can drink drinks out of them when you’re at the beach. So there! This bowl is made from a real coconut shell with various patterns inside! It’s eco-friendly and measures 15 x 15 x 6.5 cm. The bowls are meant to hold trinkets and the like, not to eat from.
