Hairy Wild Man from Botany Bay Bowl by Trent Jensen


Described as a savage giant of nine feet tall, with a broad face, deathly eyes and covered in long, but sparse wiry hair, the Hairy Wild Man from Botany Bay surely occupied the thoughts of new British arrivals to Australia as they surveyed the bush of Botany Bay. The Hairy Wild Man From Botany Bay Bowl combines the wispy hair of the Icelandic sheep with a water-formed, matt black New Zealand leather interior to reimagine this mythological monster.
