Crafted by an artisan of the Nupe peoples of Nigeria and Cameroon, this wooden post was originally part of the central beam supporting the roof of a home. Support posts such as this are typically carved with simple geometric forms, rather than figurative designs that depict a spirit or reflect familial histories. Hand-carved from a single tree trunk, this architectural post captivates with abstract forms and lives on as a one-of-a-kind work of sculpture.

This post has minor losses due to age and use.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
