Hand carved in West Africa, utilizing centuries old techniques, this coffee table is produced by the royal family of the Bamun tribe in Cameroon. Carved from the trunks of coffee shade trees which are brought down by the carvers at the request of the farmers when they become over grown, this coffee table brings artisans and agriculture together to enrich one another. The pattern speaks of the circle of life and unity within the community which this table embodies from start to finish.
