Artisans from the Luba tribe were renowned for the organic flow of their carving style. This example clearly shows the smooth transition from aspect to aspect, maintaining a singular sheen and surface. The slight tilt of the head combines with the seated posture to convey a sense of contemplation, as if the sculpture is considering the words of an unseen subject. Diminutive in nature, this quietly expressive individual retains an incredible soul as a sculptural object.
