The Lobi peoples of Ghana and Burkina Faso have a deep focus on agriculture, leaving less of their time for artistic endeavors. A notable exception is their figurative stool designs. Many stools featured the head of a person who was dear to the owner, making each a beloved personal item. Charmed in its history, this carved wooden stool with connected legs is wonderfully sculptural and subtly decorated, adorned with intricately incised patterns along the seat and legs.
