Lacquered wooden box with inlaid mother-of-pearl in double-dragon design.  The heads of each dragon stretch diagonally inward from opposite corners of the box, with wide eyes and open mouths.  Their bodies curve in and out of the top plane of the box, creating an opposing effect with symmetrical balance.  The dragons reach forward towards a flaming orb in the center of the box, called a cintamani, or Buddhist wish-granting jewel.  Among the dragons are swirling cloud designs made of inlaid nacre and copper wire.

This richly detailed, carved wooden cup has been sculpted into the form of a human head. The head’s bell-shaped coiffure and facial details are typical of Kuba masks and figurines. The face features almond-shaped eyes, a protruding mouth and nose, disproportionately small ears, and eyebrows and temples that have been engilded with tiny copper staples. The neck and the coiffure bear elaborate diamond-shaped and diagonal-lined patterns which have been further embellished by cowrie shells, embedded in resin.
