Kuba Figural Comb on Stand 07

$ 80.00

This beautiful authentic Kuba figural comb is hand carved by the Kuba artisans from Congo.  The Kuba figural comb is hand carved from wood and decorated with a beautifully carved figure on top.

In many cultures from the Congo elaborate hair styles  were seen as a 'mark of civilization' and an extension of African aesthetics.  Complex hairstyles take hours to make and require a structure to support this elegant coiffure.  Combs such as this were used to ornament ceremonial coiffures and to untangle the hair.

Dimensions: Comb is approximately 8" L.  On stand approximately 11" L
