Male figure whose abdomen has a hollowed-out shape. This object was intended for beer or palm wine administered during ritual ceremonies. The bust is incised with geometric patterns. The face is streaked with traditional ethnic marks.
Irregular satin patina.
It is in the northern part of the interior of Nigeria that the Koro settled, alongside the Waja, Mama, Hausa, and Dakakari. Especially renowned for their masks adorned with red abrus seeds embodying the ancestors, they also use this type of cup for ritual offerings during funerals or during sacrifices. Some of these sculptures formed double cups for shared use.
