Country: Burkina Faso
Terracotta vessels are characteristic of the Burkina Faso area.
The reliefs of some of them usually indicate their origin in the Lobi Ethnic Group, an ethnic group that lives in the Gaoua and Diebougou regions of Burkina Faso.
Revered as sacred water vessels, African lobi pots were used in temples and homes throughout Africa throughout the 20th century.
Pottery is found on many altars and is often specially made to be placed on them. The vessels, like all traditional African pottery, are built by hand. The Lobi use a combination of pressing a mass of clay to start the pot and then adding coils of clay that are smoothed to make the walls. The dry vessels are fired in the open air, without a pit, with wood as fuel.
This vase is a decorative element full of meaning, ideal for lovers of African art and culture. An exclusive work of art for any room in your home.
