Thivula

Also in the Mkomboti category and basic shape one finds the Thivulas or Madziro pots which are distinguished by their multiple spouts. According to some researchers, these are described as vessels used by chiefs in beer pouring ceremonies. However, most present day people believe these pots have their origin in the need for separate drinking spots as opposed to the culture of sharing the same pot as described above with all and sundry drinking at random from the same pot (view more pictures »).
