Tradition has it that the Senufo Stool, or Golden Stool, floated out of the sky and landed on the lap of the first Ashanti king, Osei Tutu, who unified the Ghanaian people in the 17th Century. It was then declared that the soul of the nation resided in this stool.

In Africa, the stool is a strictly personal item and is said to be the seat of the owner's soul. Stools can be bought by anyone, as long as the model is appropriate to the person's social status.

Senufo stools are carved out of a single piece of wood. These stools are used by Senufo women when they do their washing.
