NUPE, DOORS, Nigeria

These Nupe doors are embellished with reliefs of animals, objects and symbols. Made of joined plank-like panels, they probably communicated messages, invoked spirits or gods and brought status to their owners.
Most of the doors are hung as wall pieces, but could be mounted on bases as sculptures. The backs are usually plain and those views are not shown unless it is critical to the piece. All were photographed in direct sunlight, which worked well for some and not for others.
