The seat is the most important piece of furniture in Africa, usually taking the form of a stool or a chair. It serves as a social insignia because each person is entitled to a type of seat which corresponds to their social rank. It was said that a man was judged and respected according to the kind of stool he had. 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. Most stools are carved out of a single piece of wood. These stools are used by Senufo women when they do their washing.
