This small Ethiopian chair is all about shape. The chair has been carved into a beautiful form, in which the backrest features an almond-shaped cut-out design. The slight curve of the back support echoes the arched contours of the three splayed legs. Pyramid-shaped patterns adorn the outer rim of the circular seat, and decorative motifs of linear and cross-shaped markings repeat throughout the chair, from the backrest to the legs.
