Note translation: Published as no 36 in the album 'Achtzig Ansichten von der Goldküste (Westafrika) nach Originalaufnahmen des Missionars Fritz Ramseyer', Neuchâtel 1895. (RI). - Caption in the album: "Pottery.- Among our Africans making pots is a woman's job. They bring the clay from the foot of the mountain, pound it and work it on flat stones. With their bare hands they shape the lumps of clay into water-pots or some other kitchen utensil. After they have dried in the sun the pots are stacked up in a pile of dry wood and in this way they are baked." - The French text begins "Chose bien étrange, la fabrication des pots à eau ... est le travail des femmes..." and ends " ... est cuite au centre d'une grande cage de bois mort qui abonde dans la forêt."
