Ngala stool (N° 19934) Deposit sale

Seat collected in the region of Ngalas, Ngombe and Ngbaka. Statuettes representing a couple support the tray of the stool. Indigenous restorations with copper leaf. Satin patina, kaolin highlights. In northwestern Zaire, south of the Ubangi River, on the banks of the Lualaba, live the 120,000 Bantu-speaking Ngombe, led by a chief and a warrior society called Elombe. Their neighbors are the Ngbandi and Ngbaka whose statuary has influenced their tribal sculpture, and various Banda groups. Their masks of geometric appearance are used during the rites of the Mani society. They also produce hunting fetishes for protection, and prestigious objects decorated with tapestry nails.
