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.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
