An interesting African container that I believe to be form the Youba people, who were famous for making such things. These objects were often intended for kings or chiefs belonging to aristocratic lineage and were made by professional artists who spent long periods of time at Mushenge, the capital, where they were treated like dignitaries.

This container may have been carved to store the red tukula face powder or something similar
