The elegant form of this Jinka stool consists of a circular, slightly bowl-shaped seat supported by three tall, slender double-curved legs. Each leg features scorched geometric decorations, and at the centre of the seat, is a distinctive cross shaped design. Carved for one piece from a medium light weight wood. Over time, the surface of stool has developed a lovely darken patina.
