A unique and genuine Jimma chair, once utilized by an Ethiopian tribal chief in the early 20th century, stands as a remarkable artifact. Crafted meticulously from a single block of wood, it boasts a rich, dark brown hue adorned with a matte patina. Its design features a subtly concave circular seat supported by three beautifully sculpted legs. The distinctive curved silhouette of the backrest is accentuated by intricate geometric openwork.

These chairs held significant cultural significance, serving as integral elements in the traditional initiation rituals of the tribe.
