Intricate Hand Carved Chokwe stool Description
The Chokwe people are an ethnic group of central and southern Africa. They can be found in Angola, the south western parts of the DRC and the north western parts of Zambia. There are estimated to be 1.3 million Chokwe people in existence today. In the north the Chokwe people are known as skilled hunters but in the south they are predominantly crop and cattle farmers . They are regionally famous for their craft works, mainly with baskets, mask carvings, pottery, stools and statues. Whilst their work includes utilitarian objects it also incorporates the oral history and spiritual beliefs and mythology of the Chokwe people.
