This is a beautiful Luba Cup Bearer with four figures carved on top that is the Lid of the Cup. The Luba Tribe are from Zaire. They are carved in the shape of a female figure because the Luba believe that women have a special connection to the spirit world, based on their sacred power to bear children. In the case of the Mboko, the figure represents the wife of a contacted spirit. Mboki are also used during the ceremonies for the induction of a new chief. They serve as proof of the chief's authority and are displayed at his door. If lost or damaged, the chief's Mboko must be quickly replaced, for it provides protection and prosperity to the community. Collected in the field. This female Lidded cup is just lovely with all its spiritual and mystical beliefs that it would be a wonderful additional to your collection.
