KAMBA STOOL WITH WIREWORK TOP

Kamba, Kenya

Stool with Decorative Wirework Top. Kamba Culture, Kenya

‍This elders stool from the 1930's has its seat decorated with twisted copper strands of wire with a central spiral design surrounded by a series of semi-circular patterns.

This feature of decorating the top of the seat with intricate wirework patterns was a practice the Kamba were renowned for in the early part of last century.

This seat has also a strip of aluminum as a restoration, all this going to prove the importance of small seats in the Kamba culture which were symbols of status and prestige.
