Lobi Stool (N° 20077)

Among the African furniture items of daily use, an ancient lobi seat from Burkina Faso, which five angular legs support. This type of stool for individual use marked the social rank of its owner and was not lent in any case.
The populations of the same cultural region, grouped together under the name "Lobi", form one fifth of the inhabitants of Burkina Faso. Although they are not very numerous in Ghana, they have also settled in the north of the Ivory Coast. It was at the end of the 18th century that the Lobi, coming from northern Ghana, settled among the indigenous Thuna and Puguli, the Dagara, Dian, Gan and Birifor.
