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 with four small triangles incised on top. Middle section two, thick, round discs, flattened. Flat base, tiered. Pencil printing on bottom reads: " ADENTURE Adansi". General appearance is of a nicely carved model, little handled, and in good condition.
Height at centre = approx. 36.9mm. Width across seat (side to side) = approx. 74.6mm. Width of seat (front to back) = approx. 31.1mm. —Joel A Vanderburg
