This storage container, is used to store and hide a special maize (corn) for the next season. It is believed that this rich, dark, terracotta colored maize is unique to their village, so they want to protect it. As always, though an object in Africa is used for utilitarian purposes, it is made with beauty and the identification of the family or village.
