Ghanaian Ashanti Incised Stool

About

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 many stools of this type incorporate carvings from the Adinkra symbol language, this example is more streamlined. In place of grand symbolism, the carver decorated this stool with etched geometric motifs. The defined geometries and organic curves offer variety to this sculptural and functional object.
