YORUBA STOOLS, Nigeria

Yoruba stools, like those of the Luba, related to kings and important chiefs, who defined their power by the display of prestige objects during important ceremonies. Stools were among the most important of these objects. The ruler was literally as well as figuratively supported by a male or female caryatid figure, which also symbolizes the continuity of power.
