This is an incredibly rare early 20th century Senufo ceremonial Chair.
Carved from wood this chair depicts fish of different sizes , it also has carved figures on the ornate backrest.
The backrest shape itself is very unusual
The Senufo people, also known as Siena, Senefo, Sene, Senoufo, Syénambélé & Bamana, are a West African ethnolinguistic group. They consist of diverse subgroups living in a region spanning the northern Ivory Coast, the southeastern Mali & the western Burkina Faso.
This piece is in good condition considering its age. Please ask all questions before purchasing.
I have two of these chairs, possibly a set that would have come together.
