Paré Horn (N° 20444)

Ex-collection of French African tribal art. This horn, which is sealed with a wooden cephalomorphic stopper, must have contained ingredients with a magical purpose. The end of the horn is wrapped in a natural fiber mesh with an opening to slide the stopper.
This ritual object comes 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 Batak with whom, via maritime trade, contact could once have been established.
