Luba Lupona prestige stool

€480.00

Beautiful exceptional African stool reserved for Baluba dignitaries in Congo. These traditional seats are called "Lupona". They were often not used as such and simply served to establish the authority of the chief.

Here, cariatidic feminine figure superbly worked with many scarifications.
Beautiful clear patina. Piece of African art in very good condition despite his age. The style is remarkable and the details numerous. Some gaps and cracks.
