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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
