Object Detail

A white/creamy ceramic taha (calabash bowl) with two 3D serpentine figures forming the top rim. A pouring hole approximately 15mm in diameter has been designed into a gap between the figures on the top rim. The matakupenga (fishnet) pattern is carved in relief around the body of the vessel. The surface is rough and uses the marks of a scraping tool to create pattern and surface texture.
