Luba royal art

Royal Luba stool named after Lupona. In African art, the seat and stool were more prestigious objects than everyday objects. Thus, it was common for the chiefs and dignitaries to be sculpted this kind of pieces which they placed next to them in order to show them to the greatest number when they sat, allowing them thereby to establish their authority and show off their wealth.

This consists of a flat seat whose brothel is finely carved. A magnificent woman with numerous scarifications with a richly chiseled headdress supports this seat with her hands and her head. Feminine attributes are highlighted as was customary.

Piece added in the 1970s.
