Wooden chair – Afghanistan

Leave a comment
Middle East

It’s time to let your imagination run wild!

Since the information from our collection does not tell us much about this chair that we cannot observe simply by looking at it, why don’t we free our minds from facts and devote a few minutes to fiction?

I’ll give you a few clues. The chair was collected in Afghanistan and used to belong to the Aymaq tribe, who are a nomadic/semi-nomadic people and it might have been used in ceremonies.

So who do you think sat on this chair? And why do you think that one of the chair legs is so much different from the three others?
