The Asante stool is the most important and symbolical complex of all Asante art forms: the stools have multiple forms, functions and meanings. They range, in significance, from everyday furniture to a spiritual centre of this ethnic group. In Asante, as in most Akan communities, an intimacy is believed to exist between the chief and his stool.
