The Bamileke king of Cameroon sits on this stool during public ceremonies. This is the only time that the stool is used and the king is the only one to ever use it. The rosette design that adorns the piece is a visual compliment to the earth spider, heteroscodra crassipes. Believe it or not this spider plays a crucial role in solving problems that a Bamileke village might face by a process called spider divination. Because it lives underground, the earth spider is viewed as a link between this world and that of the ancestors.This is a very beautiful piece of furniture. It will be perfect for any room.
