Luba Dignitary Stool.
DR Congo.

The stool, such as other tribal luxury objects, were reserved for kings and members of the higher societal class. Despite its functionality, such stools were rather handled in sacral and ceremonial context than for everyday use. This specific sculpture shows a smooth and light chestnut patina with beautiful colour nuances . Rounded edges along the top and bottom planes of the caryatid sculpture depict a certain age and authenticity. Beautiful stylisation of headdress and scarifications. Hairstyles were an important element in Luba vogue and mode. In that fashion, the objects represented female figures depicting the image and aesthetics of the tribe.
