This is a wonderful Natural Round Beaded Monkey Fruit Gourd Snuff Container from the Zulu Tribal People of South Africa. These small beaded gourds were used to hold powdered snuff or small quantities of medicines or magic potions from a Shaman’s pharmacy. One of the most impressive things about tribal art is its ability to convert everyday raw materials into something special and beautiful. Consider the humble gourd for example, also called a pumpkin calabash or squash), once you have scooped the flesh out (sometimes good to eat, sometimes not), you are left with a thin rind which dries hard and watertight. An ideal container in a world where there are no bottles, cans or plastic. This is so unique and a wonderful item to display in your home or give as a gift.
Shows age, missing a lid, but overall in good condition.
