tabletop is typically wide and flat with rounded edges, which provide a smooth finishing. The Senufo

table is often carved from a single piece of wood and features intricate geometric patterns and

designs, this symbolises their culture, religion and the protection of the people. Each of these

patterns and designs has a specific meaning, and some Senufo tables also showcase scenes from

daily life.

as family meetings or religious ceremonies. The stool features similar intricate carvings as the table

and usually have three legs that are carved out of the same piece of wood. The seat is circular with a

flat top that slopes down to form a comfortable seat. The height of the stool varies, depending on

the intended use, with some stools being relatively low while others are almost as tall as a chair.
