Luba comb with feminine motif (N° 19947)

A major accessory of the sumptuous Luba headdresses, the African comb is always sculpted with motifs associated with founding myths, royalty or religious beliefs. This everyday object is topped by a female figure sculpted in the round. Missing on a tooth of the comb. Satin patina. The tribal art of Africa proves once again that any usual object can become an artistic support. The decorative aspect of an object is indeed never its intrinsic function. In African art, any everyday object can be transformed into a masterpiece while keeping its usefulness. The major role played by women in the political life of the kingdom is illustrated by the recurrence of the female motif in Luba art. The latter, which stood out for its prestige and quality, thus greatly influenced neighboring groups.
