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.
