Sankore Terracotta Pot

Regular price £125.00 Sale

We love these lidded pots, handmade in the Burkina Faso in West Africa.

The reliefs of some of them usually indicate the origin in the Lobi Ethnicity, an ethnic group that live in the Gaoua and Diebougou regions of Burkina Faso.
In the African tradition, clay pots and figures can attract gods, ancestors and spirits. The pots are used to place offerings that will serve them as food in order to achieve success and well-being from them, or avoid falling from grace.
