This stool has been vetted as authentic with significant signs of age and use.
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.
The carving on the top is less deep than on the other stools. Note the wood loss on the middle of the back "X".
