DESCRIPTION

African hand carved tribal birthing chair. Beautiful patina on the single wood back rest, with a carved lizard motif on the back. This folding chair is made from a single piece of iroko wood, native to the west coast of Africa. The wood is tough, dense and very durable. 

This chair was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanenceIt is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
