Beds are made throughout Africa, mainly for resting during the day (daybeds). In most areas, they are carved out of a single piece of wood. The complexity of the designs varies enormously. In some instances, as with the Bamileke in Cameroon, they may have complex interlocking motifs carved all the way along the sides. The Senufo have amongst the most beautiful but simplest beds. They consist of a completely flat & minimally adorned surface and a sloping headrest – sometimes conceived in the form of a turtle – as well as heavy tapering legs. While some are quite small, most are over 2m long, 1m wide and 1m high. The simplicity of the form enhances the monolithic sculptural quality of these functional works of art.
