Chokwe Stool with Seated Figure Prov: Donald Taitt

Lot 0028
This charming Chokwe stool once belonged to Donald Taitt, a notable Paris-based painter. The stool has a seated figure carved on it, and while it does not have much signs of use, it does have some age and some restorations. The figures' pose is associated with elders, people deep in thought, and also with the burial position of chiefs and important members of the community (cf. Jordan, Manuel 1998: fig. 12). H = 26 cm

Condition

Light wood with shiny black patination. Leg professionally restored. The seat and the base appear to be separate.

Dimensions

22.8 x 25.8 x 21.8 cm
