Tutsi vessel #2

These ornate milk containers are masterfully hand-carved from a singular block of wood and accentuated with tin embellishments. These time-honored vessels have served as indispensable tools among the Tutsi people of Rwanda, as well as nomadic communities in the rural hinterlands of Burundi, Kenya, and Northern Tanzania. Originally, these vessels have been used to collect milk or honey. 

After years of use, the wood has taken on a beautiful patina. These artifacts will make a stunning decorative piece anywhere in your home.
