Chair: 2 Arms
An eccentric one-armed variant of the ‘King’s Chair’. In Issa’s natal country of Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) there is a strong tradition of respect and honour for the King and the elders of the village. A sacred chair dedicated for use only by the King is one aspect of this cultural tradition. Here Issa again integrates the national emblem of Cote d’Ivoire which is the strong, wise and faithful elephant.
This piece is largely hand-crafted from mild steel, rusted to the desired patina and then sealed to prevent further rusting. It could be placed indoors or in a protected setting outdoors away from direct sun and rain.
