A section of a traditional Malian chair that is made from sticks and strips of leather alone. Not a nail in sight. No glue either, for that matter.

I find it all the more interesting because the hair on the cow-hide has not been removed.  It gives the impression of eye-lashes, or at least that’s what springs to my mind 🙂

It is also incredibly comfortable to sit on!
