Palm Wine Drinking Horn - Kuba, D.R.Congo (PC67)

Buffalo horn with metal adornment and engraving.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, palm wine drinking cups carved from the horns of bush buffalo were used exclusively by Kuba warriors and noblemen as emblems of their ferocity and connection to the wilderness. The cord pierced through the tip of the horn allowed it to be worn by its owner as part of his regalia. The incised designs are inspired by the scarification patterns that decorate the torsos of Kuba women.
