Cerelomoprhe Kuba/Lélé Cup (N° 19156)

Among the prestigious objects, this palm wine cup with its stylized handles. The sculpted face recalls the features of the great royal Kuba masks. Glossy surface inlaid with kaolin residues. Cracks of desiccation.
The Kuba are renowned for the refinement of prestige objects created for the high ranks of their society. Indeed, several Kuba groups produced anthropomorphic objects with refined designs, including cups, drinking horns and goblets. The Lele settled in the western part of the Kuba kingdom, at the confluence of the Kasai and Bashilele rivers. Intercultural exchanges between the Bushoong of the Kuba territory and the Lele made the attribution of certain objects delicate, as both groups use the same iconography, composed of faces with elaborate hairstyles and geometric decorative motifs. br>
