Stools are a minor art form for the Kuba, who are better known for their masks and textiles. Their stools, although relatively simple forms, exhibit the Kuba mastery of abstract patterns.
The main function of the stool was not to serve as a seat, but rather as a receptacle for the chief’s spirit.
Good condition with visible signs of wear and tear, great patina of use.
