Tribal Wooden Bowl with Carved Design, Tuareg of West Africa, Mid-20th Century

About

Tribal wooden bowl with carved design, Tuareg of the west African Sahel, mid-20th century. This striking wooden food or grain bowl comes from the Tuareg, a nomadic people of the West African Sahel. It was fashioned by hand using very basic tools and incorporates linear geometrical patterning etched into the outside. The exaggerated grain pattern on this piece makes it particularly outstanding. Condition: The bowl is in good condition. There has been some minor checking of the wood, and some minor nicks and bumps imparted through years of use amongst these nomadic herders. The bottom has been flattened to allow it to sit flat on a table. The bowl is structurally sound and stabile. Measures: 14.5 inches in diameter x 6.5 inches tall.
