Primitive pottery from North Africa (the Rif in Morocco). The tribal elephant sculpture participates in creating a bold and personalized home decor.
The small animal sculpture is handcrafted according to ancestral primitive techniques.
Those animals made of terra cotta are genuine tribal pieces of art. Geometric or abstract patterns embellish the sculptures. Simultaneous art and craft, each primitive African pottery is one-of-a-kind.
Warm and earth shades, monochrome designs.
Women solely craft the modeled potteries. They usually make functional objects for rural life (pots and vessels carrying water, drinking, or preserving food). Berber women also build animal potteries to delight children.
Why I love them:
These small ethnic statues have a crazy charm and a retro look. They add an unusual and personalized feeling to your decoration.
Dimensions: 8x4x4 in — 20x10xh11 cm
The animal sculptures are handmade and likely have some imperfections that guarantee authenticity.
