This February, Discover African Art will present a selection of tribal art at auction. The collection includes African masks, figures, furniture, and textiles from various ethnic groups. One of the standout items is a detailed female caryatid stool. The stool belongs to the Luba people from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The piece would be used infrequently as a sign of power, wealth, and respect.
One ethnic group featured in the auction is the Yoruba, who are native to Nigeria. The collection showcases various artifacts from the Yoruba people, including a zoomorphic shrine figure and several offering bowls. The shrine figure is shaped like an antelope with curved horns. It is made of wood with added pigments. View the complete catalog and register to bid for these items on bidsquare.
