Late 19th Century Zulu Meat Platter Provenance: Private Collection, London, England. Meat platters, called ugqoko, vary in sizes and styles. They are often placed upside down over another platter to act as a cover. They were seen as art when not in use, decorating the kitchen. This example has a strong female form on the under side. The platters were routinely smeared with fat of ritually slaughtered animals to evoke ancestral protection.
