description

The Nok terracotta culture thrived from 900 BC until it dissapeared under unknown mysterious circumstances around 200 AD.
Besides the famous terracotta’s found I have found numereous examples of a continuation of the typical Nok style. I found them in Kwara state among the Jabba people.

A typical Nok style figure in ivory.
