African Symbolic Portrait, painting, Xea B. ,framed, on a wall, Lulua

Painting – Artist Xea B. – Lulua


This painting was created after a genuine Lulua figure of a great chief.
Those statues of leaders/ warriors are usually planted in the ground to protect the household when the head of the family is absent.
The Lulua statuary is remarkable for the profusion of its scarifications, a manifestation of a wish to be socially differentiated.
Surprisingly, those marks are no found on the Lulua themselves.
