LUBA
Memory Board 4
14.5" high x 7.25" wide x 3" deep
$400
SOLD

LUBA Lukasa memory boards help to maintain and transmit historical knowledge. The "reading" of them is a performance.  They take the form of a woman/tortoise body with a beautifully carved head. This unusual two-headed board incorporates carved images rather than the beadwork on the others. It may not be intended as a memory board form. Despite its appearance, with intricate and careful execution, this object exhibits no signs of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
