This is an 18.0 cm high stool with a 16.5 cm round top. It’s carved from one piece of wood and is beautifully proportioned. These stools are made in a variety of sizes and styles but this one is the simplest of designs confirming that “less is more”, an object of art.

This male figure has some similarities with Songe and Luba tribe figures. The figure is holding a large Kuba cloth which has become a part of his body. The figure is visible from the rear but the most intriguing angle is from the front.
