Chokwe wooden stool with brass studs, northern Angola or south-west DR Congo, 19th-20th century

Chokwe wooden stool with brass studs, northern Angola or south-west DR Congo, 19th-20th century. Caryatid stool supported by a depiction of a matrilineal ancestor, her seated posture with hands behind the ears indicates mourning, reminding the living of the necessity of sacrifices to the dead. Imported brass furniture studs were often used to decorate prestige Chokwe carvings. From the Entwistle Gallery, London
