0 Reviews
Drawing on over 170 examples, this book offers a survey of the seats of sub-Saharan Africa, an integral part of a traditional culture that is already disappearing. The various essays by noted ethnologists address the cultural histories and aesthetics of African seats and other objects, as well as their regional characteristics. In addition, there is a wealth of photographic evidence documenting the use of seats and their original contexts, both past and present.
