Lot 0041 Details

Description
Löffel, "wunkirmian"
Dan / Guere, Côte d’Ivoire
Ohne Sockel / without base
Holz. H 44 cm.

Provenienz:
Nachlass Madeleine und Jean-Jacques Keller (bis 1980 Abidjan, danach Rheinfelden).

Der Löffel ist die materielle Erscheinungsform eines Hilfsgeistes für ranghohe gastgebende Frauen, welche damit anlässlich von Feierlichkeiten, rituell tanzend, symbolisch Essen verteilten.

Anlässlich der Erntezeit zwischen November und Februar fanden zahlreiche,
mehrtägige Festlichkeiten statt, zu denen jeder Dorfbewohner beisteuerte, was er vermochte. Nach diversen Anlässen und Tanzdarbietungen bereiteten die Frauen das abschliessende Festmahl vor, zu dessen Auftakt sie mit ihren kunstvoll und delikat verzierten Reislöffeln und Schalen aufmarschierten.
