Hanging Bowl

Hanging Bowl

A hanging bowl was a thin bronze bowl that was suspended by three or four escutcheons around the rim.


The Celts had a special attachment to water in pools and springs for ritual purposes. It only makes sense that they had portable containers of water for use in religious rituals such as prophecy and sacrifice. Hanging bowls were to be found in every dwelling of symbolic importance - temples, halls, and even early churches and monasteries.
