Water and Wedding pot (1) - Earthenware - CANARI ' bulabir ' - Lobi - Burkina Faso

Description
Water and Wedding pot (1) - Earthenware - CANARI ' bulabir ' - Lobi - Burkina Faso
1st half 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

This is an old used water pot.
During one of my missions in the area of the Lobi, after several weeks of staying in the same village, I learned that these pottery pots were also used to conceal the dowry under a layer of grains..

This is a very beautiful copy.

Because of its fragility, the object can be collected by the purchaser, but it can also be carefully packaged and sent in consultation with the buyer.
