BAOULE CHAIR | NO.2 | IVORY COAST

580.00$

Unique African wood chair used by the Baoule people (Akan tribe) from Ivory Coast in West Africa. They are very skilled sculptors, weavers and goldsmiths.

The chairs were traditionally  reserved for members of the Poro (secret’s men) society and used a meditation chairs. They were also offered by wives or female relatives to men after initiation. The austere rigidity of the chair ’s straight back was a sign of their new social standing and dignity.

Very charming and decorative object with signs of use in the wood which are signs of age and should be not considered as a defect.
