Large High-Back Chair

Jimma Region, Ethiopia

Large High-Back Chair/Throne. Jimma Region, Ethiopia

A series of attractive cut-out decorations adorn the enveloping backrest of this large Ethiopian throne. Exhibiting a wonderful form, the chair is supported by three beautifully curved legs - typical of those found among stools and chairs from western Ethiopia. Carved from a hard brown wood, this Jimma throne is in good condition, with no repairs or restorations.

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