Lovely wooden ancestor figure from the Luba people of DR Congo. This serene Luba figure epitomizes the art and mystery that carvers from this tribe have imbued in their sculpture. They quiet power of the figure elicits the respect that the tribe owed to their ancestors. Fair condition with a beautiful patina of age. The neck and the top of the head is a bit damaged. Traces of tribal use.
Provenance: former private Belgian collection.
