Model of traditional Ashanti stool. Stools of this general style were (and to some extent still are) symbols of authority, symbol of one's standing within the culture. The specific design of each stool has specific meaning - tells a story, reflects a myth.
Wooden, carved stool. Fine, light wood, smoothly finished. Thin, curved seat, four small triangles incised on top. Middle section, diamond shaped with four triangle supports. Flat tiered base. Quite similar to D88.231 D. General appearance is of a nicely carved model, little handled, and in good condition. Original documentation would suggest 1950s.
Height at centre = approx. 35.9mm. Width across seat (side to side) = approx. 72.1mm. Width of seat (front to back) = approx. 31.2mm. —Joel A Vanderburg
