YORUBA
CHAIR 1
38.5"
$1000
SOLD

Yoruba chairs, like their stools, related to kings and important chiefs, who defined their power by the display of prestige objects during important ceremonies. Stools were among the most important of these objects. The leader was literally as well as figuratively supported by male figures, which also symbolizes the continuity of power.

This chair shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
