KAMBA STOOL

1930's. Kenya

Stool with Bead and Wire Work Top. Kamba Culture, Kenya

This stool has been beautifully decorated on its seat with small glass beads and twisted wire. An unusual feature of this stool is the three carved figures, male and female, on the outer edge of each of the legs.

The practise of decorating the top of the seat of these stools with intricate wire work and tiny glass beads was a practise the Kamba were renowned for in the first quarter of last century. It proved the importance the Kamba placed in such small seats and the role it played as a symbols of status and prestige.
