Jipé:I cannot identify any comprehensive resources on cultural attributions for Ethiopian chairs and stools, although there is a varied selection (Oromo, Gambella, Hamer [Hamar?, Konso, Hafar, Jimma and Gurage], which can be viewed at this web-site, through which you may be able to query additional references upon which the attributions included there are based. A Gurage stool, and two chairs (one tentatively attributed to the Galla) can also be found on pages 162, 165-6 in Sandro Bocola's African Seats (London, New York, Munich: Prestel, 2002). Although focusing particularly on contemporary production, Michigan State University's "Ethiopian Material Culture Collection" and Raymond Silverman's Ethiopia: Traditions of Creativity (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1999) may provide links to additional resources to investigate the topic further.LeeOn Apr 18, 2009, at 2:13 PM, maktogoek wrote:
Greeting to all,
I am looking for people who are familiar with Ethiopian antique furniture. I am looking for actual names of objects and or ethnic groups who used them.
