Product Description

Women of the Zigua tribe in Tanzania use this piece as a device upon which to sit while shredding coconuts. The selection consists of two ingeniously interlocking wooden sections that can be folded up together when not in use and expanded when needed to be used as a seat. Extending from one of the sections is a wooden handle with a serrated metal cutter. This apparatus is used for shredding the coconut. It is held in place by the weight of the individual that sits on the seat. A stylized design has been carved into the upper seating surface. Seats of this nature are special to the Zigua and one as old as the one presented is a special find! The wood is worn and glossy from wear and use, the metal is somewhat rusty, the etched patterns are clear enough. This item is estimated to be well over forty years of age and still functional.

This seat was made in the late 20th century
