Cool things made with Gourds...?

Clinton, IL(Zone 6a)

Anybody else want to share the odd and a bit unusual, constructed from or with gourds?
I just found this:

"Japan’s Bird Electron decided it would be nice to see some speakers made from natural materials, so they came up with the concept. Each speaker has a 2.3-inch diameter full-range driver, sealed tightly into the body of the hollowed out fruit....
They’re currently available from AssistOn for ¥18,000 ($146 USD) for a pair along with an amplified stereo breakout box...."
