LUBA
Bow Stand 1
62 " high (32" wooden top) x 17.5" wide x 13" deep
$800
SOLD

A bow stand is typical of the prestige objects belonging to chiefs and important officials. They are among the most sacred regalia in a chief's treasury and are symbols of royal authority.

This example is beautifully formed, with three branches and a nice, supportive figure.

In spite of its appearance, we believe this bow stand was made to be sold.
