Stylistic large wooden stool from the Luba people of DR Congo.
In many cultures throughout the southeastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo the seats of leaders are important symbols of power and authority.
The main function of the stool was not to serve as a seat, but rather as a receptacle for the chief's spirit.
The seat of this royal LUBA stool is supported by a standing male figure who balance it on their head and his hands.
Considered the age, overall fair condition with a well stylized coiffure. Contains clear traces of tribal use.
Provenance: former private collection from Belgium.
