Each traditional hand carved Lozi bowl is crafted using a single piece of wood by the Lozi people of Zambia. Traditionally, these lidded bowls are used to store and transport food and many feature handles for easy handling and a decorative figure carved into the top. With dimensions and shape that vary from bowl to bowl, according to the particular piece of wood used, Lozi bowls are iconic objects featured in African art collections in museums and galleries across the world.
Please contact kanju to see a full range of carved wooden objects and speak with a representative to source antique and rare Lozi bowls.
The word kanju translates to “creativity born of struggle” or “making more with less.” Nothing could be truer of the exquisite pieces and talented artisans with whom kanju works across the African continent.
