Tracing the lineage of the chair leads to the Ivory Coast; particularly the Baule and Djimini tribes, in which chairs are an integral part of ancestry and initiatory practices. Wives gift their husbands this chair when initiation is complete, and when the man dies, he passes the chair onto his son; a signifier of both its exceptional longevity and material consideration for materiality.
