This stool by the Luba people of Zaire is indicative of their classic style. A single tree trunk was carved into a column, then further taken in until the robust figure of a woman appears. She supports the circular seat, representing the foundational support provided by women and embodying the marks of Luba identity. A beautifully formed storied sculpture, this stool represents centuries of tribal culture.
