Description of item
An Ashanti stool, with a column supporting the plateau, together with several holes 
 on each side, embodies the elements characteristic of seats given high ranken 
 personalities; .old repairs, several agecracks and chips, significant traces of use.

As A symbol of nationhood, and because if contains the sumsum or Soul of Ashanti
 (Asante), the Golden Stool is considered to be so sacred that no person whatsoever 
 is allowed to sit upon it. It is kept with the strictest security and precaution; and is 
 taken outside only on exceptionally grand occasions. Never must it come in contact 
 with the earth or the ground. It is always lying on its own stool or on the skin of an 
 animal such as the leopard. Ashantis have on many occasion made great sacrifices 
 to defend it when its safety had been threatened. In 1896 they submitted to the 
 deportation of their King, Prempeh I, rather than resort to a war in which they 
 feared they might suffer defeat and risk the loss of the Golden stool. They deemed 
 the loss of their King a small thing compared with the loss of their Golden Stool.
