NUPE POSTS, Nigeria

Most Nupe art is abstract, with only some abstracted animals in relief on their doors and rare pots The posts predate and are possible influences on 20th C. sculptors such as Brancusi, whose columns and bases are similar in spirit to these traditional Nupe works.

The smaller posts, 1 - 16, although placed in the ground, were ceremonial altar pieces, not structural.
