Milk Pail

Zulu, Southern Africa

Milk Pail (Ithunga). Zulu Culture, Southern Africa 

 

The Itungha is a tall narrow vessel used by the Zulu of Southern Africa as a milking pail. The carved wooden rectangular lugs on either side of the Ithunga serve as grips, and allow the vessel to be held in place. Two delicately conceived V-shaped relief decorations adorn the milk pail’s curved form. 

This Ithunga exhibits a well-worn surface, with a beautiful honey-brown patina.

 

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century  (1940’s –1950’s)
