Pot Tutsi (N° 14196)

Decorated with brass slats, this ancient container from East Africa was designed by a nomadic people. The latter was particularly decimated by the Islamic slave trade and by recurrent infighting. Population groups called "Bantous interlacustres", located between Lake Victoria and the Limpopo River, include the Ganda, Nyoro, Nkole, Soga, Toro, Hima, and the Tutsi of Rwanda and Burundi. Their cultures have similarities, as do their artistic production and their everyday objects. The Tutsi raise cattle. They also excel in the art of weaving and basket making. This elongated pot features polished and satin walls, and clearly visible abrasions and impacts of use. Medium brown glossy patina.
