Nigerian Fulani Incised Bowl

About

This carefully incised wooden bowl originally belonged to a Fulani family, a Muslim culture scattered throughout West Africa. Because the Fulani are frequently nomadic, they rely on neighboring cultures for the production of many of their objects. This bowl bears design motifs found in Tuareg bazawat bowls, although such geometric patterns are common in Fulani objects. A puncture to the base of the bowl has been closed with decorative repairs, reflecting the Fulani preference to preserve valued objects rather than replace them. The expansive bowl is textured with delicately chiseled geometric patterns, now cloaked in a rich patina from a century of use.
