Anthropomorphic Ceramic (Butter Churner)
Berber people, Morocco
Early 20th century

This large ceramic, probably a butter churner, is evocative of a female form and painted with talismanic designs associated with women.  Lines of  "stitching" and patina also seem to suggest a container made of animal hide, perhaps the original model for the pot.   

Size:  20" long x 19" high.  Custom stand
