Bamileke Hand Carved Wooden Stools


Bamileke Hand Carved Wooden Stools


This African Bamileke hand-carved wooden stools were literally and figuratively ‘made for a King’ as he sits on it during ceremonial rituals in Cameroon, honoring the earth spider. According to legend, the earth spider plays a vital part in solving problems. As the earth spider is an essential link between the present and ancestral underground world.

The “X” shape rosettes of a six or eight-star pattern carved into the Bamileke stools indicates a spiders' shape. It also suggests the common denominator shared by both spider and King of divine knowledge.
