BAMUN, HOUSEPOSTS ARCHIVES, Cameroon

In almost all Grasslands (Grassfields) kingdoms, the palace has carved pillars supporting the roof overhangs, an ensemble of door posts (jambs), lintels and sills framing the entrance, as well as the interior doorways facing the open courtyards.

These houseposts have to be packed and shipped by Craters and Freighters. We will charge whatever they charge us.
