African Wood Furniture: Ashanti Gye Nyame Sitting Stool from Ghana

by interior designer

in Furnishings

African wood furniture holds a particular importance to the people of the Ashanti tribe in Ghana. This comes from their legend of the Golden Stool (sika ‘dwa) which the Ashanti people believe holds the ‘Sunsum’, or spirit, of the proud West African tribal. They believe that if the Golden Stool was ever lost or stolen, then the very tribe itself would cease to exist. It is both a sacred stool and a symbol of nationhood and identity.

The rustic style African wood furniture seat incorporates the Gye Nyame symbol which signifies the power of God to the Ashanti people.
