Sceptre Lulua (N° 17180)

Prestigious stick with a cephalomorph handle extended from a ring section forming the neck. Beautiful abrased patina, slight gaps, desictating cracks.
The different types of statues Luluwa, Lulua, or Bena Lulua, with multiple scarifications, glorify local leaders, motherhood, fertility and the female figure. Protruding scarifications appear on the front of the perosnnage. .
Grey granular inpatine whose localized erosions reveal a clear wood. The Lulua, or Béna Lulua from West Africa, settled in the south of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their caste-based social structure is similar to that of the Luba. They produced few masks, but especially statues of ancestors representing the ideal warrior, mulalenga wa nkashaama, as well as the head of the Leopard Society and statuettes mbulenga related to the spirits of nature. (Tribal art of black Africa. JB Bacquart)
