Zulu spoons and ladles were used for cooking and eating, and some were also used in rituals and celebrations. Traditionally, each member of a Zulu household owned his or her own spoon for taking food from a common plate. This very personal object was stored in a case when not in use. Some spoons and ladles, like this one, were decorated with stylized embellishments, while others featured human figures in the design.
