The Kabras, 20th century, Kenya

Beautiful clay pot (called Isiongo) made by a Kabras female potter and used by women for storing water. The Kabras (called also Kubras or Kabarasi), are a subtribe of the Luhya people of Kenya. They reside in Malava that is in the Kabras Division of Kakamega District, which is neighboured by the Isukha, Banyala, Tsotso, and the Tachoni. They raise and keep livestock as well as farming maize, sugar cane and other crops. The exact origin of the Luhya people is currently disputed, but there are historians who believe that the group came from Central and West Africa and migrated to their present-day location by way of the so-called Great Bantu Migration.

Lovely globular form and narrow necked clay pot are in good condition. Age-related wear, chip and minimal scratches. Size approx. 23,0cm x 22,0cm x 22,0cm. 

Provenance: Finnish private collection
