While originating from the African continent, this chi wara is likely not created by the tribe who invented the design. The tribal attribution indicates the origin of the design, not the object.

This Chi Wara has iron staples joining the head and body pieces. The human figure is a separate piece, with a square peg going securely into a square hole. Something appears to have been broken off the top of the Chi Wara head, possibly another figure.
