"Luba Talk "

Original watercolor collage

 

 

Luba traditional sculpture is known for its distinctive figurative style, with pug-nosed beauties brandishing wildly decorative, cantilevered hairstyles. If one looks at the early 20th century photos of Luba chiefs and their wives (e.g. Torday's work), it becomes clear that this "style" is based on reality.
