These staffs are associated with the Yambio region which was once the capital of the Kingdom of Gbduwe. Mack (Schildkrout and Keim 1990, 222-225) maintains these abstract sculptures were created as presentation pieces by Balanda artists who sought refuge in the court of King Gbudwe (died 1905) at the turn of the last century.
