1960's - Good condition
3 beautiful Kuba Shoowa textiles - ca. 1960.
The beautiful Shoowa textiles are an essential part of the Kuba tribe culture. They are extremely laborious to make - men take care of smoothing the palm fibers and weaving, the women take care of the embroidery. The production of 1 carpet takes a total of 4-6 months. The fascinating geometrical motifs always have a specific meaning - these motifs are also seen in the body scarifications of the Kuba men and women.
The Shoowa textiles are used as a means of payment, a means of exchange and are an essential part of the dowry.
Dimensions resp. 67 x 67 cm, 58 x 60 cm and 70 x 60 cm.

El penacho de plumas de la máscara no vino suficientemente protegido y 6 de ellas llegaron quebradas; el producto no llegó pues "all in perfect condition", lo cual reduce significativamente su valor

Les photos ont beaucoup trop embelli l'objet. Bref, je suis déçu. Dommage.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Thank you for the feedback, the description of the lot was correct and complete.
