Product remarks

  • The unique item shown on the image is the exact item you will receive.
  • 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. Despite being a patriarchal society the Luba people trace succession and inheritance through the female line. Consequently caryatid figures that support chiefs' stools generally depict female ancestors. This Luba sculptural tradition was designed to identify and glorify the king chiefs and titled officials who constituted the complex hierarchy of leadership within the Luba empire.
