“a symbol for eternity… where all thirst is quenched. the african calabash is used when there is a gathering or coming together of people, where ideas are shared and stories are told. it can be used when serving … and is always placed at the center
it is therefore a symbol of closeness and sharing 
it holds the community together 
it is a symbol of fertility and growth 
it is a symbol of laughter, dance, happiness and the essence from which life flows”
