Footed Bowl vs Fruit Bowl

Hi there,

1st of all, look at this pic.....

I found this from store.metmuseum this morning while I'm looking for my bowl design project.
Look very nice and style but I don't think it's suitable for daily use.
If I got it, I will use it as a decoration on my dining table as a fruit bowl.

Info :-
One of the most unusual—and favorite—objects in the Metropolitan Museum’s Egyptian Collection is a red-polished ware bowl with supports shaped like human feet. Although the human feet add a touch of levity to its appearance, they were not created solely as an element of humor. This ceramic form should most likely be read as the three-dimensional hieroglyph for the word “w’b,” meaning pure or clean. Our reproduction is a copy of a bowl from the Predynastic period (ca. 3750–3550) in Egypt. 

  • For decorative use only. Wipe with soft dry cloth; do not use abrasive cleansers.
  • 3 1/2''H; 5 1/4'' diam.
  • High grade terracotta
 Excavated footed bowls were often found in cemeteries as an offering of clear water. The bowl tips forward so that purified water could be spilled out onto the ground.

durian oh durian

The durian (pronounced /ˈdjʊriən/)[2] is the fruit of several tree species belonging to the genus Durio and the Malvaceaefamily[1][3] (although some taxonomists place Durio in a distinct family, Durionaceae[1]). Widely known and revered in southeast Asia as the "king of fruits", the durian is distinctive for its large size, unique odour, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The fruit can grow as large as 30 centimetres (12 in) long and 15 centimetres (6 in) in diameter, and it typically weighs one to three kilograms (2 to 7 lb). Its shape ranges from oblong to round, the colour of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale yellow to red, depending on the species.

The edible flesh emits a distinctive odour, strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Some people regard the durian as fragrant; others find the aroma overpowering and offensive. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as almonds, rotten onions, turpentine and gym socks. The odour has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia.

The durian, native to Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia, has been known to the Western world for about 600 years. The 19th-century British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace famously described its flesh as "a rich custard highly flavoured with almonds". The flesh can be consumed at various stages of ripeness, and it is used to flavour a wide variety of savoury and sweet edibles in Southeast Asian cuisines. The seeds can also be eaten when cooked.

There are 30 recognised Durio species, at least nine of which produce edible fruit. Durio zibethinus is the only species available in the international market: other species are sold in their local regions. There are hundreds of durian cultivars; many consumers express preferences for specific cultivars, which fetch higher prices in the market. - wikipedia

Most of people in Malaysia really like this durian very much. I really like it n my hubby also like it (since he is not eat other fruit except durian and banana. so I highlight about this fruit as my 1st entry. Durians are usually difficult to be found except at certain seasons are usually in the early years.
