Spider Stool

Cameroon - Bamileke

Did you know… Even though this object is often referred to as a stool the actual purpose of this Spider Stool is to be used by the Bamileke of Cameroon as a throne. If you look carefully enough at the geometric forms on the stool they turn out to be representations of spiders. In addition to serving as a symbol of power this seat represents a connection between Bamileke leaders and the wisdom of the ancestors.
