Mid-20th century - good condition

A Luba Hemba Janus staff two headed , Democratic Republic of Congo.
One side one male, one female.
Height: 25 cm without stand, 31 cm with the stand.
These double heads are also called 'Kabeja', always represent a man and a woman, back to back. They represent the ‘ancestor’ couple of the Hemba people and are preserved in the houses of the clan and village chiefs. They have a protective function for the members of the clan and their rituals. The present ‘Kabeja ’ is made of a head of hard wood dyed black on top of a woven raffia structure, and a raffia ball on top.'. A piece in perfect, typical Luba-Hemba style, with good patina and a slight burn smell.

Can be viewed or picked up, if so desired, at David Norden's Buy African Antiques Shop in Antwerp.
Sold with a written description of the tribe and with the private opinion of David Norden.

Free delivery. Sent by insured and registered mail with Track & Trace. May also be picked up at David Norden in Antwerp, by appointment only.
