TERRACOTTA, BLACK PAINT HEIGHT 28CM
These 2 pots are part of a very old collection. Here is the history. Nji Pamfeyouo was known as a powerful healer who had the gift of knowing the virtues of herbs for treating mankind. He officially held the title of NKOM (member of the royal council, in charge of traditional affairs) until his death in 1982. Like so many noble men in African society, he was polygamous and a father of many sons.
One of his sons was Chouaibou Njoya Nkuandi. Struck by severe illness, his family gave him the authority to dispose some of his fathers artefacts in order to raise money for his treatment.
