Wooden Stopper For Traditional Medicine Container

Pare, Tanzania

Wooden Stopper for Traditional Medicine Container. Pare Culture, Tanzania

This carved wooden stopper was once part of a small traditional medicine container. When inserted into the top of the calabash vessel, the removable stopper would have tightly sealed its contents.

With its carved large round head, circular ears and white beaded eyes, this figural stopper has wonderful presence. The surface of the wood exhibits a typically oily patina.

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (Or Before)
