Kuba neck support (N° 25325)

The African sculptures held by members of the Kuba royal family and peripheral groups, Bushoong and Dengese, bear refined decorative motifs, parallel lines, intersecting, checkerboards. Objects of daily use are also embellished with them, such as this double headrest whose caryatic figures refer to the animal totems of the clan and to the ancestors. Glossy dark brown patina, mahogany reflections. Desication cracks (plateau).
The Kuba kingdom was founded in the 16th century by the main tribe Bushoong which is still ruled by a king today. More than twenty types of tribal masks are used among the Kuba or "lightning people", with meanings and functions that vary from group to group. Ritual ceremonies were an opportunity to exhibit decorative arts and masks, in order to honor the spirit of the deceased or to honor the king.
