For thousands of years, if not more, humans have needed containers for countless different objects. In the beginning, storing food and water was essential to the longevity and prosperity of early civilizations. They likely used objects found in nature, like hollow gourds, as receptacles. As time progressed, containers were needed for religious ceremonies, cultural practices, personal adornment, and other aspects of daily life. Materials changed, decorations were added, and the container sometimes became more significant than the object placed within it.
