Congo Kuba Textile in Plexiglass Box Frame
Vintage Kuba Textile from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, formerly Zaire, are uniquely different for the complexity of design. this variation is rectangular and exemplifies the artistic geometric variation.
It doesn’t matter when this was made, the artist knew how to make an impact. The bold graphic almost graffiti like patterning is instinctive geometry at it’s best. Fashion is linked to status and power. Kuba Kings were the early “Game of Thrones.” At this point it’s impossible to accurately date the cloths. This one can be hung vertically or horizontally. Innovation is balanced in artistic continuity.
