Most Nupe are Muslim and their art is therefore abstract, with only some stylized animals in relief on their doors and some pots. The stools come in many forms yet are all carved from single blocks of wood. All share a richly carved top surface.
This stool has all four original legs, but one has a replaced tip crudely
fastened on with nails (stable). The top design is almost worn away and
there is visible wear, especially on the front and back edges.
