For 10,000 years, gourds have been grown and used as ornamentation, musical instruments and utensils. In Japan they have a long tradition as water containers (hyoutans), tableware and decorated carved vessels for sacred spirits in Shinto temples. In Feng Shui the gourd is also considered a receptacle of good fortune. The many positive connotations render the gourd speakers an ideal house warming gift.
