Pair of Zande Vessels

DRC 

Pair of Anthropomorphic Vessels. Zande, DRC 

 

These anthropomorphic vessels are testament to the rich figurative pottery tradition of the Zande Kingdom. Each pot is surmounted by a human head, a male and female respectively. Both pots are the skilful work of a single Zande artist. 

The slightly larger scale of the ‘female’ pot in relation to the ‘male’ projects her significance. Traditionally, this pair of prestige vessels would only have been used during ceremonial occasions. 

 These vessels were field collected in the 1990's
