Stools are among the most important symbols of Luba kingship, as they are for many African peoples. Not only is the Luba king’s palace referred to as a “seat of power”, but seating is a metaphor for the many levels and layers of hierarchy that characterize Luba royal prerogatives.Those incorporating female caryatids give expression to the Luba conception of the female body as a spiritual receptacle that supports divine kingship.This stool is in good condition, though worn with age, and has evidence overall of old worm wear to the surfaces.
