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.
