DINKA JUG

R650.00

The Dinkas, from Sudan, expertly carved their milk vessels from one solid piece of indiginous wood by hand. These jugs would eventually start breaking from overuse, but were successfully repaired using metal pieces to patch the cracks. The individual designs resulting from these functional, metal repairs add a mystical uniqueness to each piece. Each vessel is one-of-a-kind and brings a simplicity and functionality showing off their beauty. The simple cylindrical shape adds a beautiful dimension and contrast to the décor of the room.
This piece can bring a highlight in any décor. They can be displayed in any room as a stand-alone , a few of them in different sizes can be clustered together on a table, console or shelf to give a gorgeous contrast with modern décor. We also love it displaying a bunch of beautifully selected dried flowers to serve as a vase.They have a beautiful story and are guaranteed to be a wonderful conversation piece. These pieces are not just objects but a blending of traditional African craftsmanship with contemporary style. Please note dimensions are approximate.
