The artistic production of the people living in the Grassland of Cameroon is closely associated with royal and societal ceremonies. Large figures, thrones and prestige paraphernalia are used by the king to assert his power.
In Cameroon seats, in particular, were the prerogative of royalty. Only a ruler could sit on a seat depicting an animal. Certain carved wooden stools are reserved for important people in Western Cameroon: the Fon (king), chiefs, Ma Fo (a powerful female), and certain nobles. Some stools are for everyday use and others are used during the meetings of traditional societies.
Gorgeous royal beaded throne from the BAMILEKE tribe of the Grassland of Cameroon. The throne is made out of wood and beads.
Good condition with traces of tribal use.
