Since the traditional meal is eaten with the fingers, these spoons, which are very often ornamented, have another function than preparing or eating meals.
In Ivory Coast, these richly ornamented and carved spoons were used for the village festivities in which a woman of the village was designated for her hospitality and for her generosity.
The chief of the village asks to this woman to organise meals of ceremonies, often including many participants.
The Wakemia is the emblem of her merit and materialises the gratitude of the villagers.
She will use it to distribute rice and meat, and she brandishes it during the ‘dance of the hospitable woman’.
