Intricately Carved Ashanti Stool

Heavy stool that has been hand-carved from one solid piece of wood. Stools indicated power, status, and lines of succession in traditional Ashanti culture. The flat base, curved seat, and ridged supports reference the Ashanti King Stool. While most Ashanti woodworkers carved the central support into a symbol or animal, this maker went with a more realistic pierced central column and ring design.  Features a concave top surface with a thick rounded edge seat that sits on a highly decorative and intricately carved base.
