What is the royal and sacred object of the Ashanti people?

Crystal Pants
Diamond Eggs
Pearl Gut
Golden Stool
The Golden Stool is the royal and divine throne of the Ashanti people. Each stool is understood to be the seat of the owner's soul and when not in use is propped against a wall so that other souls passing by may relax on it. The royal throne must never touch the ground; instead it is placed on a blanket. During inauguration, a new king is raised and lowered over the stool without touching it. A throne is carried to the king on a pillow, as only the Asantehene himself is allowed to handle it.
