Details

Tradition sits regally in this decorative lazy chair, known as Ekurasi, at one time reserved for the night watchman lending attentive vigil. Ekurasi also means "village," the illusion created by the careful and intricate hand-carving of this chair. Presented by Ernestina Oppong Asante, the home accent is crafted of local odum wood and masterfully detailed with polish in different hues. Infused with African artistry, this piece makes for an original complement to a sophisticated setting.

Please note: Maximum weight capacity 125 lbs; item is intended as a decorative accent.

"Highest quality, unique, very functional"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ADORE this chair. I use it as my resting chair in my living room (Im tiny), yet also put it out in the garden during the summer (tho I would not leave it out in the sun or rain, of course) . Dont leave this beauty in your cart or someone will get it. Someone spent a great deal of time carefully carving and polishing this and it shows!! PLEASE, PLEASE make an adult version of this chair. I would certainly buy it.

"Spectacular!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Im not an expert on African art, so when I would see masks for hundreds of dollars in a shop I would not know what I was paying for. But this mask is just as beautiful and it supports living artists at a price I can afford. I am so happy I got this mask, and as soon as Im out of lockdown I look forward to showing it to my friends!!

"masque correct, mais ......."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Masque correct, mais qui nest pas celui de la photo. La girafe est beaucoup plus fonc?e, mais le probl?me est surtout l?l?phant qui est dune couleur orange fluo, rien ? voir avec la photo, + la trompe et le front ne sont absolument pas sculpt?s, ils sont tout lisses.. Je vais devoir repeindre l?l?phant, car retourner le masque est trop contraignant, et aurait un co?t.
