Meat platters are still used throughout the area of present-day KwaZulu Natal. They come in various sizes. Some platters are big enough to hold large quantities of meat for communal consumption on special occasions. They are reserved for the roasted meat of ritually slaughtered goats or oxen. Their widespread use underlines the continuing importance rural Zulu-speakers ascribe to their ancestors in securing the well-being of the living. The styles of these platters vary from one region to another, the majority being rectangular in shape, with rounded corners and four short legs. Most platters have decorative panels on the blackened underside. The platters are sometimes smeared with the fat of ritually slaughtered animals in order to seal the wood as well as because fat is associated with the idea of ancestral protection. The platters acquire a deep patina due to this procedure.
