In the Iringa region
of South Central Tanzania live the Kami, Zaramo, Gogo and Hehe people, who all use similar style stools. We acquired this piece from the Hehe, who had a reputation for being fearless warriors and their name comes from their war cry. Notorious
for their skillfully carved three - legged stools, from a single piece
of hardwood,( possibly Msekeseke wood), the stools are surprisingly comfortable. They were used
during ceremonies by persons of high status.
The wear and tear on this stool gives it added character.
Height: 11" - 11 1/2" x approximately 15" diameter.
