Two Elders' Stools

Pokot, Kenya. £750

Two Elders' Stools. Pokot Culture, Kenya

Small, three-legged stools such as this were carried and used by Pokot elders, in which they served a dualistic purpose as functional objects and material symbols of the individual's rank and prestige. One stool, larger than the other, displays an elongated form, with three tall, slender legs supporting a circular seat. The other smaller-sized stool consists of three short flared legs, with flattened feet. Both stools exhibit a smooth, glossy honey surface patina.
