Maconde, Tanzania

African stools, like this one are a popular art form, both useful and beautiful. The gentle, sculptural shape is achieved through the carving of a single piece of wood. Signs of wear in this vintage piece, as well as mild nicks and scratches, add to its authentic and timeless beauty. The Makonde consider stools a minor art form, as they specialize in masks and intricate carvings, but their skill is nevertheless evident in this graceful example of the form.
