Hand carved Ashanti stool in the form of an elephant. Constructed from tropical hardwood. Circa 1920

Ashanti stools are traditional to Ghana in West Africa, they are carved from a single piece of wood and have a distinctive crescent shaped seat. 

The name refers to the Ashanti or Asante people of the region to whom a golden stool is the sacred symbol of nationhood held in absolute secrecy and defended with considerable sacrifice since its miraculous creation over 300 years ago. The elephant represents the power of the king who traditionally would have been the only person allowed to commission such a stool.

In excellent restored condition, there is a repair to one of the tusks which can be seen in the photographs. Lots of polished in marks as to be expected, please see photographs for more detail.

Width: 58cm
Height: 47cm
Depth: 28cm

A striking and decorative piece that would make a beautiful addition to any home.
