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.

“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.”
