The Dogon made ritual vessels to hold the food consumed during their burial ceremonies. The petite scale, and simple human figure mark this as the vessel used for a villager. Due to tribal hierarchy, vessels for the common man have become increasingly difficult to find. The legs, basin, and lid were all hand-crafted, giving this vessel a uniquely organic sculptural form.
