I cherish wood carving. Bought two of this about 25 years back. Carved on it is picture of typical village scenery and lifestyle. Women in the market place carrying palm woven stread basket on their head . Farmer with hoe and cutlass either going or coming from the farm. Royal king on the throne. Depicting traditional lifestyle.
It serves basically as a stool for sitting, eating purpose or to put a decorative vase on it. Periodically polished to give it gloss effect.
