Golden artifact that fell from the sky

Some years back, there was a National Geographic article in the magazine (sometime in the 90's) about gold. In the article, there was also a picture of an old man holding what looked like part of an intake manifold - except that it was gold. I believe that they referred to it as a "stool", or a seat or something. They claim it was a gift from the gods, and that it fell from the sky long ago.
Unfortunately that was pretty much all the article mentioned about it. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this article or if it had ever been mentioned before.

Nope, never heard of it.

I've heard of other weird objects falling out of the sky before though.

Football sized, spherical metallic objects have been seen falling to ground over the centuries, notably some were seen falling during the late 19th century.

Wouldn't 'a gift from the gods' be given in a more appropriate manner?

Falling randomly from the sky isn't an ideal way to deliver a gift is it?

Next Christmas, i'm just going to lob my families gifts over their garden fences...if it's good enough for the gods, it's good enough for me.

maybe it fits in perfectly into the "Gate of The Gods" door near Lake titicaca

You guys are a riot. I can always count on a laugh before 8am on this site.
Now that the coffee has soaked a little deeper into my brain, I remember that this was an african tribe that was obsessed with gold. So much to the point they would paint their bodies with it. The whole clan of them is most likely dead by now from heavy metal poisoning.
I've googled the "artifact" and come up with nothing. Yet if someone has one of the 90's issue NG's, there is a picture of it on one of the pages being held by a wrinkly old man, and it seriously looks like an intake manifold - or part of a turbocharger....except that it's gold.

Most likely the Golden Stool of the Ashanti.

It sort of reminds of that movie "The Gods Must Be Crazy."

Only a giant golden stool would be much stranger and harder to schlep around the savanna.

Maybe the National Geographic was talking about this:

The Ashanti People
