Hello! Very heavy thick with symbol in center? I paid $2.00 and bought same time as yesterday's post of singing Buddhist bowl. It is 12 1/2" diameter. I would love to know symbol meaning! Help Needed! My guess is Middle Eastern! haha Thanks for looking! Don

    Hi Don, construction is typical of articles made in India, but the center design is Chinese. It is the symbol (one of many) for the Chinese Star God Shou. He is the god of longevity and the symbol on your bowl is read as 'Shou', long life. Go here for more: https://www.google.com/#q=symbols+for+shou
