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.

“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.”
