Three-legged stool – (2421)

Wooden stool with three legs. In contrast to three-legged stools in Europe and America, African stools such as this one are often carved from one solid block of wood. What an effort must have gone into finishing this object without breaking off one of the legs. The stool has been used well and shows a great smooth patina all around. Akan culture. Ghana. Height 24 cm. Diameter seat 26 cm. Weight 4 kgs.
