Ghanaian Ashanti "Wisdom knot" stool
Country of origin: Ghana
Year: ca. 1960
A handcarved stool with a curved seat, raised on the "wisdom knot" on a wooden base. The story goes that only the wise can untie the knot, so the Ashanti stool is reserved for authority figures only.
The stool is made out of one piece of wood.
The stool is in an excellent condition.
