This masterful piece of a medium skeleton Makonde carving helps understand some of the ways of the Makonde people. Their ordinary way of life may appear exotic and extremely interesting to us. Their excellent craftsmanship seeks to bridge this gap by sharing with us some of the day-to-day activities of the Makonde tribe. This figurine is of a tall, slender woman carrying a pail of water. No art-lover can back away from this quality handiwork.
