Very fine LUBA, HEMBA stool presenting a standing female fertility statue, holding up the seat with her hands and head. The face and hairdo in typical Luba style with a serene expression. Scarifications on the body.
Such stools were reserved for kings, chiefs and spirit mediums and fostered the fertility of humans, land and nature in general.
Good condition, but this tabouret can show some usual wear and tear, cracks and several tribal reparations see pictures.
