Ceremonial Girdle

Kuba, DRC

 Fine Ceremonial Girdle. Kuba Culture, DRC

 

This Kuba ceremonial beaded girdle was worn by a Kuba chief as a symbol of prestige, wealth and importance. The beaded belt is adorned with nine large decorations that serve as protective charms, composed of cowrie shells and fine glass beads.

The beadwork is arranged into geometric designs, that are typical of the Kuba. The unusually large size of the attachments make this girdle particularly special.
