Nigerian Ashanti Drum Stool

About

In traditional Ashanti culture, stools indicated power, status, and lines of succession. The flat base, curved seat, and ridged supports of this piece 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 drum, even including two staving mallets. Representing power and leadership, drums were associated with respected members of the tribe. The surfaces have acquired fantastic character with time and use. We particularly love the asymmetry of the upward reach of the top.
