Troon van hout

the chair as a status symbol  ———

The chair can also symbolize power and status. Think of the throne. For thousands of years, this has been the chair for the greatest authority.

This is the throne of King Béhanzin, the last king of Dahomey, present-day Benin. What happens when you dethrone a king? Do you then also deprive him of his power?
