511 - Terracotta pot, in shape of a ball

Djenné, Mali, with finely worked neck

Simple Nok pot, round, slightly ovalized. The neck is ornamented with small worn-out scales that, perhaps, covered the total surface of the receptacle. This pot is captivating by its material, its colour and its simplicity, far beyond its utilitarian vocation and use.

H. 16 cm
14-17th century
