Used to commemorate the birth of a first son, this Ghanaian throne stool is designed by Raphat Asigbey. Using cedar wood, he crafts the decorative stool to feature a curved top with two legs. Elephants are hand-carved into the legs, which are accentuated with rope. The artisan gives the stool an antiqued finish to complete it.
