Pende palmwine cup
Height: 13 cm
A fine rare Mpiin (Pende ) palmwine cup featuring a standing figure.
On ceremonial occasions, men and women drank palm wine from elaborately decorated cups, according to the consumer's social status. The face on this cup is carved in the form of a standing figure with its hands resting at either side of its torso.
Very good, no cracks or damage.
