Traditional Bamileke Stool

Traditional Bamileke Stool

$649.00

Made from the hatching of a single piece of wood.
This artful traditional Bamileke stool is hand carved from a tree trunk. In preparation, the lumber is sunk in water to soften the material before the engraving work. Historically, those stools were only reserved for the Chief seating during ceremonies. They represent power, magnificence and social status. The sculpting of the “X” shapes on the stool surface, is to evoke those of a spider web. In the bamileke tribe spider webs represent the connection with ancestors and the balance between past present and future generations. Because the stool circumference depends on the trunk size, not all tables are exactly the same. This stool can be used as a coffee table. It’s a great accent piece for any room.

Material: Wood
Dimension: Height 17.5" /Circumference 51"/Diameter 19"
