ANOTCHI

Heroic Medicine Man

ANOTCHI is the amazing medicine man who sided with the Asante tribe and brought down an incredible golden chair from the sky.

This piece of holy furniture contains the spirit of the Asante people and no-one is allowed to sit on it. Not even the king. He just has to squat and pretend.

The mighty stool even has its own umbrella to adorn it during ceremonial occasions. If you feel we are trying to fool you, the stool should still be residing at the Royal Palace in Kumasi.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Anotchi graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Anotchi movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Anotchi statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Anotchi. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
