Ghana Traditional Stool

The Ghanaian traditional stool, locally known as Asisija, is a black stool made for kings and queens in the palace. It has significant cultural and historical value as it brings unity and authority, links up family past, and symbolizes the hope of Africa. Traditional stools in Ghanaian homes are also an integral part of their culture, with each stool having a name and meaning behind it. The wood used for making the stools includes the gold tree, locally known as nyamidia, and the sese tree. The finished products of the stools and the Asisija are crafted with care and represent an important part of Ghanaian heritage.
