Details

Decorative motifs appear in white, adding cheer to the darkness of tweneboah wood. They adorn a djembe drum by Ernestina Oppong Asante. The abstract motif at the base is Gye Nyame an Adinkra symbol highly regarded in Ghana; its rotating form means "I fear none except God." Adinkra symbols communicate popular wisdom.

This traditional percussion instrument is finished with mansion polish. The goatskin head is affixed by iron rings wrapped in cotton, and a macramé cord can be slung over the shoulder. The djembe originated in Benin, where it is used during voodoo rites, and has been introduced into neighboring countries such as Ghana.

"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.
