Most Luba art relates to kings and important chiefs, who defined their power by the display of prestige objects during important ceremonies. Elegant staffs of office were among the most important.

Despite its traditional form and appearance, this staff exhibits little use or age and was probably made to be sold. The carving is embellished with four upolstery tacks. The wood part is 21" high, the whole staff with the iron rod is 66.5" high.
