2nd half of the 20th century - Very nice condition
It is particularly interesting to see how far a sculptor, working in accordance with the artistic canons of a society, can push its limits while producing a work accepted by his community. The architectural qualities of the Songye sculpture are evident in this beautiful stool of prestige. It was designed by a master sculptor who worked between 1950 and 1970. The Songye prestige stools are like those used by their neighbours, the Luba. J. D. Flam considers that the caryatids are symbolic ancestors, a link between the living and the dead, an affirmation of the power of the leader and of ancestral continuity
