They are, with reason, one of the most persecuted elements of high decoration. They are also tremendously versatile as they can be used as an auxiliary table, temporary seat, or simple ornamental foundation of refined environments.
They are carved in wood and are very firm and resistant. They are covered by a coating to which the colored beads are attached.
They are used by chiefs and authorities of the Bamileke tribe and through them show all their prestige, so they are one of the main elements of these.
The motifs include leopards (it is the most important real icon since it shows cunning, speed and aggressiveness and grants the ability to survive), spiders (symbol of wisdom), human figures and designs of heads, lizards and other more abstract themes. They are often abstracted in the repetition of patterns.
