Okou Stool (N° 21540)

This ancient piece of traditional African furniture was collected in the Okou region of northwestern Cameroon, a region mainly populated by two ethnic groups: the nomadic pastoralists 'Fulani' and the semi-Bantu cultivators 'Nso, Oku and Kom'.
African stools and chairs reflect, by their ornamentation, the social rank of the one who owns it.

Raw piece by excellent, the Okou stools are carved in the mass of a piece of wood, thus monoxyles. This one carries patterns in rhombuses established on a base also carved of a geometrical frieze.
The initiates of the customary societies of the Cameroonian Grasslands chieftaincies each had a distinctive seat of his rank, used daily or on the occasion of ritual ceremonies. Matte patina, ochre, uneven surface, cracks of age, lacks and abrasions of the wood.
