If you were a kid about 70 years ago, your mother and her friends probably used the Ewoki, a large wooden bowl to "sze-sze" the family's equacoco as well as other tasks that required a good sized bowl. As more people entered the market economy, enamelware bowls began to replace these. They are now priceless and nobody makes them anymore. The mokove, shown on the left, was made of a plywood-like material, possible flexible bark, and was a superior container for the storage of dried fish or meat. The mba-ah is made out of a variety of cane called mose-eni, the same type used to make the " "Esoko" and the "ngata" that goes over the Esoko. It is used for storage of spices. This last beautiful item is called a kunda. We would appreciate it if a reader comments on its use and the uses of the other items.Actual photographs of these and other traditional items would be appreciated. Lastly, if there are any existing artisans who are still capable of making these items, rest assured, we will make sure that whakpe and others at home and abroad purchase them and actually use them.
