This is a great piece! Made in Ghana from sese wood, the double beaded Ashanti Mask stool has intricate beading and metal inlays.
Different variation of these stools are one of the most carved objects in Ghana.
The village of Ahwaa near Kumasi is noted for carving these stools.
After shaping the wood in the form of a stool, the carver carefully depicts the symbol that corresponds to the name of that particular stool. The Artist finishes the stool by smoothing it with leaves that are rough textured like sand paper.
In national annual festivals, such as the Odwika, chiefs visit their local stool shrines and perform traditional ceremonies.
