Product Description


In Africa, most seating such as chairs and stools were commissioned to honor royalty or highly regarded village members. This was accomplished by infusing traditional symbolic motifs that reflect the perceived character of the intended recipient into the piece. The artisan would have to be adept in his craft and also possess an extensive knowledge of tribal lore. Before Islam and Christianity the Baga people of Guinea were very attached to their ancestral traditions. At present the Baga are trying to resurrect these practices. Above we have a hand crafted seat made from one piece of a beautiful pecan brown hardwood that is native to the country of Guinea. This type of stool is not mass produced rather it is a unique job that was specifically commissioned. Four sections carved in a shield like fashion, each detailed with a pronounce face of a Baga woman forms a central ring between the base and seat top. This is a unique elegant smaller stool that will add a touch of tribal elegance to any decor!
