Description

The Asante stool is the most important and symbolical complex of all Asante art forms: the stools have multiple forms, functions and meanings. They range, in significance, from everyday furniture to a spiritual centre of this ethnic group. In Asante, as in most Akan communities, an intimacy is believed to exist between the chief and his stool.

Good condition, with clear traces of wear and tear.
