Kongo funeral pot (N° 20939)
Pot on foot of a beautiful regularity, with orange slip. A wide band of motifs in relief borders the walls. According to the catalog "Sura Dji, faces and roots of Zaire" (1982), this type of bowl was used for prepared food.
Along the Zaire River, over 200 km, cemeteries were uncovered around the 1940s. In Sanga, Bukama, but also in the region of Pungwe, around Lake Kisale, funerary ceramics were discovered buried in the graves of chiefs.
