Arsi pot (N° 21446)

Honey, butter or milk pot, made of a coloquinte established on a basketry base. The pot is sheathed with leather straps, extended by a dense, careful weaving of straw, perfectly sealed with resin, and finished with carrying straps lined with cowries. This type of container, a kind of prestigious "crockery", was reserved for great festive occasions. The inner walls have a crusty surface for use.
