In African Tribal communities, stools indicate status, power and succession of chiefs and kings. Carved from single blocks of wood, Ashanti stools traditionally have crescent-shaped seats, flat bases and complex support structures, which exist in many designs with symbolic meaning. Ashanti stools are spiritual as well as practical. They were understood to be the seat of the owner?s soul and when not in use, they were leaned against a wall so that other souls passing by would not settle on it. The stools can also be carved with the shapes of various animals, sacred to the people, carved as the base shape. Here we have a beautiful elephant stool bringing with it all the wonderful attributes and symbolism of elephants - loyalty, family, nurturing, intelligence and strength.
