Material: Wood
Period: 2nd half 20th century
Condition: Good condition, used with some signs of wear

Splendid “Luba-Shankadi Headrest” from Congo.

Remarkable work, carved with particular attention to details:
This headrest is composed of a base on which a couple is facing each other, with the arms placed on each other’s body.
The seat of the piece is supported by the heads of the figures.
In the original myth, this primordial couple gives birth to a monstrous being with four arms, four legs and two heads.

This piece features the aesthetic canons characteristic of the Shankadi style, which most famous representative is the famous ‘Master of the cascading headdress’.
We can observe the refinement of the elements and richness of the details carved by the artist.

From a private Belgian collection.

Dimensions:
Height: 19 cm.
Width: 19 cm.
Depth: 6.5 cm.

The parcel will be shipped with track & trace.

    'The old Luba Neck support' has a strong smell of burned wood. Everyone with a little knowledge of African Art knows what this means : not old but new.
