African Ceremonial Wooden Spoons
African Ceremonial Wooden Spoon or ceremonial ladles, known as wunkirmian or wakemia (which translates as "spoon associated with feasts") were the prerogative of the most generous woman of a village. These are badges of prestige acknowledging an individual woman for her incomparable generosity. Oversized (they can measure up to two feet), they are not so much utilitarian objects as symbols of status and the bearer of spiritual powers. Make a note how the African society worships their women.
