Lulua Maternity Figure (N° 17817)

The different types of statues Luluwa, Lulua, or Bena Lulua, with multiple scarifications, glorify local leaders, motherhood, fertility and the female figure. The umbilical is particularly prominent, the center of the body and the object of all solicitudes ( The Power of the Sacred, M. Faïk-Nzuji) Diamonds, erogenous and symbolic protruding scarifications, checkered circles and rectangles embellish strategic parts of the anatomy and face of perosnnage.

The Lulua, or Béna Lulua from West Africa, settled in the south of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their caste-based social structure is similar to that of the Luba. They produced few masks, but especially statues of ancestors representing the ideal warrior, mulalenga wa nkashaama, as well as the head of the Leopard Society and statuettes mbulenga related to the spirits of nature.
