African Bamana Pot with Lizard Motif


This African Bamana pot features a raised-relief lizard motif, suggesting its water-related function, which indicates that this is a domestic pot used for storing and serving water. Although women create the pots, men offer them as bride wealth, so this duality collapses the borders between the domestic and ritual spheres. Ultimately, these pots embody a multiplicity of economic, social, and spiritual meanings and uses, all communicated through their aesthetic form.
