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


Provenance: private Belgian collection.
Dating: the 1965s.
Size: 18 x 16 cm
Material: wood.

  • One of the lots arrived badly damaged. What was described in "very good condition" had likely been previously glued. The photo available and the description were misleading. Waiting for seller reply.

  • I was worried about the delay in receiving the item but it was due to a strike of the workers at the delivery company. I forgot about all this as soon as I received the headrest. It is beautiful!.
