Ashanti Stool, African Tribal Creations, Art, Asante Used Figure Ghana Wood Akan For Sale

Ashanti Stool, African Tribal Creations, Art, Asante Used Figure Ghana Wood Akan

African Tribal Creations Stool sale!

This sale is for a beautiful, well used, Ashanti Stool! Numbering nearly 2 million people, the Ashanti, or Asante, of Ghana are a widespread people in the southern portion of the country, and belong to the Akan conglomerate of ethnic groups. Most famous for their elaborate stools, which are carved for each member of the Ashanti society, they are capable craftsman, producing both fine metalwork via the lost wax casting method, and highly detailed woodwork, from maternity figures, to stools, to household items, to their internationally renowned "acua'ba" fertility dolls. The honored deceased are also commemorated with fired ceramic head busts.


Understood originally to be symbolic of power, and tied closely with the succession of chiefs and kings, the Ashanti stool is a central part of their cultural identity, steeped in tradition, and even represented upon their cultural flag. The stools are said to contain the souls of their owners, and are kept and used to consult that soul after their passing. This Ghanian Ashanti stool is beautifully carved, and appears to be in good overall condition. It is normal, indeed typical for Ashanti stools to demonstrate a lean in one direction, as this would be the side that was used to sit upon. As such, a lean is present in this piece, and distinguishable in the photos. In the center of the seat is affixed an old Ghanian coin, likely intended as a representation of prosperity. It stands successfully on its own, and in a safe room should require no additional support. This piece does display probable signs of use, and exhibits minor age cracking, as well as normal marks like edge chipping, rubbing, etc. An absolutely fantastic piece that has come to us directly from Ghana, and will undoubtedly make a beautiful addition to any quality collection!



Dimensions of this stool are 10" x 16.5" x 7". It weighs in at four pounds.
