The Yaka people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo used stools to emulate their more favored arts, masks and figural fetishes. Consequently, the distinctive drum form base and seat were frequently bisected by figures and faces, such as the double-sided face seen in this stool. Hand-carved from a single piece of wood, the stool's two faces, incised rope motifs, and nail-studded surface combine for a unique sculptural presence.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
