Covered in a now beautifully worn red clay slip, this hand-formed long-necked vessel is an excavated pot of the Djenné people of the Inland Niger Delta of current-day Mali. With a history dating back to 200 BC, Djenné, also known as Jenne-jeno, was a highly sophisticated and prosperous civilization which reached its peak in the 9th century, stimulated by trade in iron, copper, gold, rice, and salt. Subtly etched crosshatch patterns encircle the base of the vase's long neck, and vertical lines trace the arch of the rounded body. Still in remarkable condition, this exquisite vessel reflects the skill of Djenné artisans, beautifully formed with graceful proportions.
