From Malawi Hand carved Lake Malawi chair

From Malawi Hand carved Lake Malawi chair

A hand crafted, wooden birthing chair which I purchased in April 1991 in Salima Bay Malawi. Free UK delivery.

I was 6 months into an African overland trip from London to Nairobi.
There are cracks in the hardwood but it does not undermine the rigidity of the chair. As you can see, it depicts local fishermen and their prospective catch.
The chair can be sat on quite comfortably, but it is naturally more for decoration.

I couldnt take the chair with me when I bought it, as I was backpacking so it was packed up and posted by surface mail via the Suez Canal. After a few months I thought it wasnt going to get home to Cornwall, where I was living, and after a few more weeks I forgot all about it. It finally arrived intact, in August of that year.
