African Bamileke Animal Stool

$980

About

Marked by the telltale Bamileke rounded disc seat and base, this stool is supported by the linked forms of three animalistic figures. Created from a single tree trunk, the stool serves dual purposes as both a seat and a wonderfully sculptural decorative object. Joined in the center with no back legs, the stylized animal forms gain a mythical quality that adds to the stool's sense of playful wonder.
