Museum Provenance

These stunning Smithsonian-exclusive designs reprise the intricate pyro-engraved geometries of a Nigerian henna gourd in the collections of our National Museum of African Art. After beautifying henna motifs were drawn on a woman’s hand, she placed her arm in the gourd to protect the pattern until the dye stained her skin.

Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
