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.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
