Despite its appearance, this Bamileke bowl shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

This wood vessel possesses the decorative expressiveness that typifies
much of Bamileke art. There is a cracked area down the front on the right side of the lizard (see last detail above) that ends in a crack on the bottom of the bowl. The crack is old and stable and has been partially repaired to make it less visible. The side view of the lizard is especially nice as is having an open space beneath the bottom of the bowl.
