EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable artifact from Nigeria, dating back to the 19th century. The bowl lid, originating between 1800 and 1878, is an exquisite piece of craftsmanship that reflects the rich cultural heritage of Africa. Made from a large gourd and adorned with intricate animal decorations, it exudes a sense of elegance and artistry. The buff-colored lid features incised patterns on both its inner and outer surfaces, adding depth and texture to its overall design. At the top sits a stem-like structure that adds an element of functionality to this decorative item. Notably, four beautifully carved birds are prominently displayed through incised decoration on the surface. This photograph offers us a glimpse into Nigerian history as well as their traditional practices related to food and drink. It serves as a testament to the creativity and skill possessed by African artisans during this era. Displayed against a neutral background in Nottingham City Photos collection, this image invites viewers to appreciate the beauty found within everyday objects from different cultures around the world. While not intended for commercial use or associated with any specific company, this print allows us to explore diverse artistic traditions while celebrating Nigeria's unique contribution to global heritage.
