ETHIOPIAN
VESSEL 9
21.5" high
SOLD

Used to carry and store milk, these vessels are made of guords, basketry, mud/clay and leather and adorned with cowrie shells. Years later they still have an old odor that some people might find too strong or objectionable. We have made no attempt to change that; it could probably be alleviated to some degree.

The large plug on this gourd is wood and has a large chip missing. The beadwork suggests the gourd may be Turkana.
