This Mossi pot is handmade of terracotta. An iconic design, these types of pots were originally used as sacred water and beer vessels both in temples and homes. One-of-a-kind and a rare find from Burkina Faso, it is made by the Lobi tribe. Mossi pots are some of the most treasured pieces in African ceramics and often embody this classic form; a holly spherical body decorated with evenly-spaced points and a detachable top.
