African stools, like this example from the Nupe, are a sophisticated art form. Remarkably carved from a single piece of wood, with carefully designed patterns and graceful legs. Most Nupe are Muslim, so the patterns are always abstracted rather than figurative. Signs of wear in this vintage piece, as well as mild nicks and scratches add to its authentic and timeless beauty.
