Description:

From our personal collection, on offer is this charming palm wine cup from the Kuba peoples of the DR Congo. Symbols of status, such cups often feature the geometric motifs & patterns the Kuba are so well known for, as is the case with this piece. An imaginative, somewhat abstract concept, the head of this vessel is supported by the neck & legs of a stylized female figure. The face, & back & top of the head, are highlighted by beautifully carved & incised geometric motifs. A handle is found at the back of the piece.

Overall condition:
very good; minor abrasions. A marvelous piece that would grace any ethnographic collection.
