Collected in 1945- wood-shiny black patina-good condition-upper skin needs replacement.

A fine first half XXth century Kuba cariatide stool with 5 complete figures.
H 45 cm Wood with a dark shining patina
Wood -nice old shiny patina. Fine carving of the five figures ( see images ).
Kuba religion was focused on the King and all of the ceremonies and royal symbols show religious importance. Seven creation stories are present within the Kuba culture; most believe in one or two gods possessing the nature spirit.

PROVENANCE : Colonial family acquired this at the end of the 1950's. From a retired Belgian collector who had more than 70 Art objects mentioned in the Guy van Rijn Yale database of African art.

This is a unique occasion for you to get a genuine object in your house at very low starting prices.

The name of the collector will be given to all buyers in the accompanying documentation included in every package.

  • Reclamar a Catawiki a la menor incidencia. La figura llegó mal embalada y rota!. He tenido que devolverla al vendedor y este "señor" no ha querido reembolsarme los gastos. Mal profesional.
