Soup Or Salad Topography Bowl: Eccentric Luncheon Fare

 

Topography BowlTopography Bowl

 

For a mere $179 US dollars, you too can create a miniature landscape at your very own dining room table. (Why you would want to is another matter completely which is not covered here.) The strangely realistic gadget was designed by Kouichi Okamoto and is known as the topography bowl. It will transport you to the Alps and other mountainous regions for lunch and to a quiet mountain lake for dinner. Just close your eyes in between sips of tomato soup and you can be eating an entire mountainside, lakes and trees included! (Leaves are extra.)

Shaped like your favorite mountain range, this topography soup bowl makes the perfect gift for the eccentric navigator or former mapmaker who no longer knows or cares where he lives. The topography bowl works in the following manner and you really should listen carefully. (Alas, if you are interested in this topography bowl, the chances are that you are already lost!) Filling the topography bowl with salad is said to render the impression of a lush green valley, while if you fill the topography bowl with soup it is a lake.

Whatever it is, the topography bowl is sure to cause a stir both along the mountainside and deep into the forest where the deer and the antelope are …laughing.
