African Gourd Painting with Leather bone frame
This authentic Kenyan artwork depicts traditional gourd bottles, used to carry milk or water. The Bottle Gourd is one of the oldest known cultivated plants, and has been used for many different purposes all over the world. A special kind of gourd (called kibuyu in Swahili) was used by the Maasai to hold a blend of milk and cows blood, a staple food of the Maasai herdsmen in Tanzania and Kenya. This beautiful Batik artwork was lovingly handmade in Kenya, using leather & bone to complete the frame
The painting is ready to hang with leather and bone frame.
