Hand-carved with an abstract design, this tall wooden post was crafted by an artisan of the Nupe peoples of Nigeria and once stood as a central support beam for a family home. Nupe posts are typically carved with simple geometric forms, rather than figurative designs that depict a spirit or reflect familial histories. We’re captivated by the assimilation of forms within this minimalist sculpture and the textural disintegration of the portion once submerged below ground.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
