House posts are among the most important and outstanding sculptures in Yoruba art.

This particularly beautiful example shows a standing female figure with heavy breasts, possibly an allusion to the mother figure as the pillar of society.

The surface structure, marked by age and weathering, enhances the overall aesthetic effect of this object.
