Day Bed (Senufo People, Ivory Coast)

15 x 68 x 24 ″Hand carved of hardwood.Sold

These beds are designed and constructed by the largely animist, Senufo People from the Republic of Ivory Coast. The simple elegance of this bed enhances its sculptural quality as a functional work of art. It features a mainly flat surface with minimal adornments. The monumentally tapered legs are carved from a single tree trunk. Only a very influential chief of the Senufo could have afforded the transport of such a giant tree. The bed is marked by a rich, dark brown patina with no signs of indigenous repairs.
