Most Luba art relates to kings and important chiefs, who defined their power by the display of prestige objects during major ceremonies. Every object shows the care and fine carving for which the Luba are known. Often embellishing objects with a female figure, the Luba believed that women mediated between kings and the spirit world.

Despite their traditional form and appearance, these objects exhibit little use or age and were probably made to be sold.
