Luba cephalomorphic game (N° 17998)

This awalé game of the mancalas is adorned with a Luba head. This one is styled, behind the headband giving off his traditionally shaved forehead, a toque composed of large braided checkerboards. The apron is dug out of twenty-four alveoli, arranged in four parallel rows. Cores, seeds, pebbles and shells formed the pawns. The object can be laid flat or presented vertically. Powdery ochre patina. Abrasions and shrapnel. br
