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.
NOTE: There is some wood loss on the top, one leg is short (front of 3rd view, back of 4th view) and there clear breakage from wear on the front and back edges. The careful faceted edge is a nice touch.
