Early 20th Century Tuareg Bowl

About

An early 20th century Tuareg bowl carved of a single piece of wood with an incised line pattern around the perimeter, with three beautifully executed repair straps. The Tuareg are nomadic pastoralists who inhabit the Saharan region of Northern Africa. Because so many of their meals are taken "on the go," they create beautifully carved wooden bowls that are light easy to pack for their journeys. Large pieces of wood are hard to come by in the Sahara, so cracked bowls are repaired rather than discarded, and passed down from generation to generation.
