Kuba Box (N° 24705)

The Kuba are renowned for the refinement of prestige objects created for members of the high ranks of their society. The Lélé live in the west of the Kuba kingdom and share common cultural specificities with the Bushoong of the Kuba country. Both groups adorn their prestige objects with similar motifs. The only ethnic group to create a variety of lidded containers in which individual goods were stored, the Kuba adorned them with patterns similar to those of embroidered textiles. Reddish residue inside probably comes from tool, a traditional cosmetic paste used by Kuba men and women. Dark brown satin patina, very good condition.
