Prestige Cup

Wonga/Kuba, DRC. POR

Palm Wine Cup. Wonga/Kuba Culture, DRC

 

This fine palm wine cup depicts a male figure sitting cross-legged on a raised base. The figure is poised in an upright stance, holding a vessel in both hands. Finely engraved scarification marks adorn the figure’s temples. 

The figure’s serene facial expression and small, closed mouth symbolises the value of contemplation before speech.
