HEHE, STOOL 12, 46", $800, SOLD, Tanzania
Although the elegantly carved, three legged stools are considered everyday objects, the ones with high backs are especially carved for chiefs and are often referred to as chief's chairs, or thrones. They were used during judicial and initiation ceremonies and share their form with the neighboring Nyamwezi, Zoromo and other peoples.
