Nok of great classicism
This small and extremely beautiful piece is 2,500 years old. It brilliantly embodies the whole of Nok art. All the canons of Nok statuary are evident. This piece appears in the book "Prodrome, Nok terracotta", from the Jacques-Henri Bouquet collection, p. 28-29. Sublimely beautiful and enigmatic, the eyes of the past are looking at us…
The piece is mounted on a metal base.
