  • The Chamba people of Nigeria and Cameroon believe in a cosmic world in which the interaction between God, the dead, the creatures of the wild and human beings, constitute a common arena of daily concern. Additionally, they are concerned with the management of potentially dangerous agents called 'jup' that manifest through performances such as libations and sacrifices. While we do not know if these striking 3-legged pots were for food preparation or ritual use, that does not diminish their wonderful form and workmanship as objects of beauty and spiritual presence.
