A genuine Jimma chair, once belonging to an Ethiopian tribal chief in the early 20th century, bears witness to its rich heritage. Crafted meticulously from a solitary piece of wood, its dark brown hue boasts a subdued sheen. Characterized by a gently concave circular seat upheld by three artfully sculpted legs, it presents a graceful profile. The curved silhouette of its backrest is adorned with intricate geometric patterns, exuding an air of tradition and craftsmanship.

These chairs held significant ceremonial importance, often featuring prominently in initiation rituals within the tribe's cultural practices.
