These African decor pieces are called Bamilekes and are used as side tables. Another living room idea is to stack several of these Bamilekes with a variety of widths and heights together and turn them in to a stunning coffee table. They are all hand carved wood and ‘made for a King,’ to sit on during ceremonial rituals in Cameroon while 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.
