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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
