Zela Statue (N° 25706)

Carved from dense wood, this African statue offers numerous details accompanied by inlays of upholstery nails. The hairstyle organized in large parallel shells and the body scarifications are specific to the Zela.
Dark oiled patina, lighter residual incrustations. Erosions and desiccation cracks.
Formerly subject to the Luba, then to the Lundas, the Zela adopted a large part of their uses and traditions. Established between the Luvua River and Lake Kisalé, they are today organized into four chiefdoms under the supervision of leaders of Luba origin. They venerate a primordial couple frequently represented in statuary, mythical ancestors, and make offerings to the spirits of nature. Ref. : “Luba” 5 Continents. Rooberts.
