Luguru Throne (N° 24851)

Former prestigious anthropomorphic seat. Traditional patterns are alternately chiseled on the surface. The subject's pupils were originally encrusted with pearls. The circular seat is slightly concave, supported by an openwork base. Nuanced brown patina, erosions and abrasions of use.
In the southern coastal region of Tanzania, around Dar-es-Salaam, a relatively homogeneous group produced most of the artistic productions. It includes the Swahili, Kaguru, Doé, Kwéré, Luguru, Zaramo, Kami. Among these populations, the seats are thrones intended for the heads of lineage, each of them being under the protection of a tutelary spirit. These stools were set apart in shrines named kolelo, guarded by priests.
