YORUBA, VERANDA POSTS ARCHIVES, Nigeria

Most Yoruba houseposts were placed in the inner coutyard, or veranda. Some will appear to be support posts but, like those that do not, they did not bear weight. Common motifs include the king, senior wives, mounted warriors and other supporting figures. Although usually frontal, some have figures facing in opposite directions.
