Medium High-Back Chair

Jimma Region, Ethiopia

Medium High-Back Chair. Jimma Region, Ethiopia

 

A distinguishing feature of this piece is the beautifully decorated upright backrest - adorned with a series of cut-out diamond-shaped designs and cross-hatched striations. Carved from a single piece of wood, this high-back Ethiopian chair is supported by three finely curved legs.

High-back chairs figure prominently in the installation of chiefs among the Gurage and related cultures in southern Ethiopia - serving as symbols of rank and entitlement during meetings by the council of elders.

Estimated Period: Late 19th Century / Early 20th Century
