CHOKWE
STOOL 2
18" high
$500

Despite its appearance, we believe this stool was made to be sold.

Stools are a minor art form for the Chokwe, who are better known for their impressive masks and figures. This stool, however, shows the figure of the legendary hunter-hero, Tschibinda Ikunda, ancestor of all Chokwe chiefs, exalting strength and dignity, and often carrying a rifle. Stools like this were produced for the court.
