Luba Hemba Lukasa Memory Board


Divination and African art in the Congo

We know in the African art of the Luba complex the famous memorial tablets with small pearls as divinatory objects. However, the lukasa, as they are called, are not limited to this typology. There are examples such as this one, on the front of which we find figurative engravings or not.

A lukasa of this type is part of the collections of the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren as seen in attachment.

The character who sits at the top of the present tablet seems to be at the crossroads between the Luba, Hemba and Holo artistic styles. Anyway, this is a very nice piece in excellent condition.
