Prehistoric Baby Bottle
Favorite Historical Pots #4

This baby bottle tenugui features a prehistoric ceramic Bavarian infant feeder from the late Bronze age, circa 1200 BCE, and a modern plastic baby bottle. Ceramic feeders of these types can be found as far back as 7000 BCE and have recently been discovered to have contained ruminant milk. Some hypotheses are that feeding babies with milk from domesticated animals freed up women to do other kinds of labor (surprise, surprise) and that weaning babies leads to increased fertility  and a population boom. The golden color references the golden color of colostrum, the nutrient-rich milk produced immediately after giving birth. 

In this tenugui, we have a mama cow running this way and that in sneakers, trying to get all that needs to be done in a day, done! This tenugui is a celebration of motherhood.
