The royal or chiefly seat called no'oanga would have been used during ceremonies as a symbol of status. The smooth carving and elegant curves of this stool are typical of work done in the Cook Islands. Carefully carved from a single block of wood by the skilled artists of Aitu Island, this type of stool was made for the market and traded throughout the Cook Islands.
