Zigua Calabash (N° 26891) Deposit sale

French collection of African tribal art. Small used medicine receptacle, made of a dried gourd whose wooden cap represents a head. Abrasions and cracks. This piece of tribal artcomes from the northeastern region of Tanzania, bordering Kenya, facing the Indian Ocean, where the Paré, Shamba, Zigua, and Mbugu tribes live. A relative homogeneity characterizes the productions of these groups, recalling some of the Malagasy and Bataks with whom, via maritime trade, contact could once have been established. Among the Zigua, sculptures served as an initiation support for educational purposes.
