Luba Visions of Africa (N° 19492)

The book, abundantly illustrated, offers representative works of art of the Luba of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
This publication develops, among the major themes, the role of visual and performance arts as well as the instrumentalization of royal insignia in the framework of the traditional Luba politics. The text also explains the symbolism of images of women, the femininity of the king, problem solving and healing processes. Finally, it discusses the phenomenon of the use of art objects in the creation and transmission of historical knowledge both in the heart of the Luba country and in its periphery. Case studies observed in the course of the authors' extensive field research shed light on the philosophical system underlying the thinking and visual expression of the Luba.
