Luba Stool (N° 24415)

The Shankadi belong to the Luba group, and have the same associations and structures. Their mostly realistic statuary is characterized by spectacular hairstyles, a smooth surface, lower limbs of lesser dimension. The "cascading" hairstyle illustrates one of the various braided compositions fashionable in Zaire in the 1800s, highlighting the social status of the wearer. he seated figures, entwined, leaning on the toes of their counterpart, symbolize Luba royalty. The characters embody the spirit of an ancestor, vidiye. Brown patina with mahogany reflections, residual inlays.
The Luba (Baluba in Chiluba) are a people of Central Africa. Their cradle is Katanga, more precisely the region of the Lubu river (Baluba “the Lubas”).
