Wooden Carved Milk Pot Stylized Monkey Motif. Mid-Late 20th Century. West Nepal.

About

Wooden Carved Milk Pot with Stylized Monkey Motif. Mid-Late 20th Century. From the Middle Hills of West Nepal. This rustic milk pot was hand carved of local hardwood in the middle hills of western Nepal, using very basic tools. Geometric designs adorn the body of the pot. A stylized monkey sits on the side and forms its handle. The shape of the monkey is particularly striking on this piece. The pot would have been used to hold milk, yogurt or clarified butter. There is an old repair on the upper part of one side where wood has been inset, strengthened with wire and then carved to blend with the surrounding areas. This repair is original to the piece and serves to emphasize the utilitarian value it had in its original setting. Dimensions: 7.5 inches by 6 inches by 9.5 inches tall.
