Product Information

Details

This type of spoon is used by the head of the family from the Dan tribe during their first harvest season, says Salihu Ibrahim as he explains the traditions of this Ivoirian tribe. "Some of the harvested crops are cooked during a large family gathering. After the meal, the head of the family and the elders dance with hands raised high to thank the gods for blessing their land so they can have more crops to feed them, as well as asking the gods for a bumper harvest in subsequent seasons. As they dance, the head of the family holds the spoon in his hands." Ibrahim carves the sese wood sculpture by hand, masterfully detailing a nude male figure.
