Product Description

Asante Stool

Asante People, Ghana

C19th

The Asante people are famous for their stools. Some think they are a symbol of wisdom, others believe they have a spiritual function or a distinct connection to their ancestors. They were used for every day objects and during rites of passage but most importantly they were political symbols of power to identify and legitimate the rank of a chief. In fact no where else in West Africa is the stool accorded such significant value. The role of the stool was so essential in the inauguration of a chief that he was said o be "enstooled" into office.
