KORO, FIGURES ARCHIVES, Nigeria

The Koro people carve figural containers that are used for drinking and pouring beer or palm wine during sacrificial offerings and celebratory services after funerals.

Most of these, despite their appearance, show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
