Hand-carved with an abstract design, this tall wooden post was originally used as a support beam in the home of a Nupe family of Nigeria. Like much of Nupe art, support 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 elegant spiral twist of this minimalist sculpture and the subtle chiseled texture of the hand-carved surface.
