The Golden Stool is a sacred symbol of the Ashanti nation believed to possess the sunsum (soul) of the Ashanti people.

These stools were made for chiefs and important people and were considered important state regalia. They were believed to contain the soul of the owner. The seats were crescent-shaped, and the stool was carved from a single piece of wood, reflecting the skill and talent of the stool carvers and not nailed together like European chairs. Among the Akan, a well-carved stool serves multiple purposes, in addition to providing a well-designed seat to sit upon. 

Designs of stools may vary depending on the inventiveness of the stool carver, and today many of the historical forms are either forgotten or interpreted anew.
