Drum (1) - Leather, Wood - Bakuba - DR Congo

Description
Drum (1) - Leather, Wood - Bakuba - DR Congo
Late 19th century - Good

This drum was collected in Zambia in the 1980's. It shows signs of extensive use with the wood worn smooth on all sides. The original seller attributed the drum to the Bakuba region of the DRC and was sold with other Kuba masks and ritual items at the time.

The wood is very sturdy. The skin is probably not the original, considering the age of the wood. It has, however, been used and shows signs of repair.
