Hand-carved crocodile stool from Burkina Faso. Used in the family compounds of the Lobi and other related subgroups, the shape of the stool often suggests zoomorphic imagery. Though low, sitting on the stool is surprisingly comfortable. Used at mealtime and in the home to perform daily tasks.
Measures: 6.5h x 30L x 5w inches
