1165 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

H. 10.5' (26.7 cm)
100 BC-300 AD
Typic depiction of a seated man made by the Nok people of Nigeria, at the very start of the first millennium AD. The astonishing artistry and early date of Nok pieces rank them among the most important artworks on the African continent and they occupy a major position for analysts of African cultural systematics as well as in terms of their sheer aesthetic value.

1166 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

H. 10.5' (26.7 cm)
100 BC-300 AD
Currently, comparatively little is known of the Nok culture. Flourishing between 900 BC and 200 AD, the Nok “culture” is technically a misnomer, for the artistic traditions it represents are the only common characteristics shared by different Iron-Age agriculturally-based communities that differed in all other respects. Their artworks, however, constitute the most sophisticated and formalised early African artistic tradition outside Egypt.

1167 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

H. 10.5' (26.7 cm)
100 BC-300 AD
Technically, they are very unusual because of the manner in which coiled and subtractive sculpting methods were used to capture likenesses. Aesthetically, they are both naturalistic and expressionist, with highly distinctive elongated forms, triangular eyes, pierced pupils/nostrils and elaborate hairstyles. This piece is a classic of the Katsina Ala style. The body is relatively naturalistic, shaped in a series of graceful curves into a sitting position with one knee up and the other flexed against the floor.

1168 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

H. 10.5' (26.7 cm)
100 BC-300 AD
The left hand rests on the hip, while the right is pressed against the chest; each holds a small cylindrical object, probably weapons of some sort, or staffs of authority. The most extraordinary characteristic is the supremely elongated head, which is formed into a long, conical shape narrowing from the brows to the mouth.

1169 - Nok anthropomorphic male head

H. 22.9 cm x L. 14.6 cm
500 BC-200 AD
Comparatively little is known of the Nok culture, which is defined largely on the basis of its superb terracotta artworks. Flourishing between 900 BC and 200 AD, the Nok style is in fact an agglomeration of similar traditions that flourished in western and central Nigeria. While there are different stylistic categories, these have little social significance as finds of in-situ Nok material culture are almost unheard-of.

Stray archaeological discoveries have confirmed that the Nok culture is in fact a myth – the Nok is a tradition, a style of manufacture that was adopted by different Iron-Age agriculturally- based communities that in fact had widely varying cultures in all other respects. What does unite the trends, however, is a series of outstanding ceramic sculptures, which constitute the most sophisticated and formalised early African artistic tradition outside Egypt.

1171 - Nok anthropomorphic male head

H. 22.9 cm x L. 14.6 cm

It should be noted that the sophistication of these terracottas makes some scholars believe that they sprang from a hitherto undiscovered ceramic tradition. Technically, they are very unusual because of the manner in which coiled and subtractive sculpting methods were used to capture likenesses. Aesthetically, they are both naturalistic and expressionist, with highly distinctive elongated forms, triangular eyes, pierced pupils/nostrils and elaborate hairstyles.

1172 -

1172 - Nok anthropomorphic male head

H. 22.9 cm x L. 14.6 cm
500 BC-200 AD
Substyles of the Nok tradition include the Classical Jemaa Style, the Katsina Ala Style (elongated heads) and the Sokoto Style (elongated monobrow foreheads, lending a severe expression to the face) and random variants such as the Herm Statues of Kuchamfa (simplified cylindrical figures topped with normal heads) and the “standard” three-dimensional standing figures, which subscribe to the Jemaa style. The function of the art is unclear, although the care with which they are executed has led some to claim they represent nobility, perhaps ancestors to which obeisance and sacrifices were offered.

4210 - Nok Clay Male Figure, Ancient or Modern Replica?

H. 4 inches x W. 5 inches
Repair: some wear at edges, minor chips. Probably a fragment of a male figure with one hand on the chin another on the torso. African terracotta figures are at once some of oldest recorded sculpture from Sub-Saharan Africa but equally some of the most problematical as well. They often are difficult to place among a people or culture and equally difficult to date.

4237 - Nok anthropomorphic bust

African terracotta figures are fired at a low temperature and are subject to surface abrasion and wear, therefore details of the face or body parts and dress or jewelry may be lost through wear and age. The clay sculpture figure tradition is still being defined in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa, however this figure could well be placed in the Nigerian tradition, especially in the northern Nok complex of styles.

4238 - Nok anthropomorphic head

This figure shares certain stylistic elements with figures from northern Nigeria, the famous Nok complex of terracotta figures. The diamond-shaped eyes and posture relate it stylistically to figures often found among the Nok culture. Also, the fact that the figure is shown wearing a ceremonial hairstyle with chignon to the back is another common Nok element.

4825 - Nok anthropomorphic male head

This delicate terra-cotta head is from the Nok culture (Northern Nigeria), one of the oldest civilizations south of the Sahara. It is a fragment of a figure and would most likely have been proportionately oversized in comparison to its body. Once the figure was finely sculpted, it was placed in a pit and fired at a very high temperature.

4830 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

The Nok people, one of the oldest civilizations from Sub-Saharan Africa, inhabited the central region of Nigeria, probably from around the 5th century BC to the 2nd century AD. Nok culture is known primarily through its highly sophisticated sculpted terra-cotta figures.

500 BC-200 AD
Gift of funds from Darwin and Geri Reedy 2002.27.16
The molding of the face, with its bulging, elongated eyes, flared nostrils, and open mouth, is representative of the Nok style. Another prominent feature is the hairstyle, a sign of high status, carefully modeled into four protruding shapes.

4832 - Nok anthropomorphic female bust

500 BC-200 AD
Gift of David and Sara Lieberman
Given their antiquity and aesthetic appeal, Nok are highly sought by European and American collectors. Most of the genuine pieces currently offered for sale originated from illegal archaeological digs. At the same time, the market is being flooded by forgeries. Museums need to carefully review the records of ownership of Nok objects to avoid these pitfalls.

6183 - Sokoto anthropomorphic male bust

From Northern Nigeria, this Sokoto sculpture of a bearded male is a perfect example of the Sokoto style. The most distinctive feature and the hallmark of the Sokoto style is the figure’s linear brow that has worn away over the ages but is still clearly visible.

6184 - Sokoto anthropomorphic male bust

The subtle horizontal lines almost seem to join each other above the broad, flattened nose. Otherwise, much of the modeling and material is closely related to the Katsina and Nok styles. The texture of the figure’s beard is elaborated by a series of vertical linear incisions, typical of the Sokoto style.

6231 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

The hands are simple and spatulate, the ears angular and delicate. The head is exceptionally long and tubular/conical, with a broad brow crowned with an ornate cap decorated with stamped and incised designs. The eyes are heavily lidded and laterally placed, with pierced pupils. The nose is unusual, with large, round, flared nostrils set a good distance apart, with a thick-lipped, large mouth surmounting a cylindrical beard that gives the face its sharp appearance.

6250 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

This monumental sculpture is a highly unusual piece by the Nok. It is primarily remarkable because of its enormous size, and also the pose of the figure. It portrays a male (?) individual from the upper chest upwards, posed as if leaning forward, his chin resting on his right arm, which is in turn crossed over the left. The arms and neck are bound with linear bands denoting jewellery.

6721 - Nok anthropomorphic male statue

Seated Male Figure with Beard. Nok culture, Jos Plateau region, Nigeria circa 600 BC-600 AD
H. 21 x W. 7 3/4 x D. 11 in. (53.3 x 19.7 x 27.9 cm)
The "thinker" pose of this figure was a favorite of Nok artists. Bodies are typically cylindrical in form and are adorned with bracelets, necklaces, belts, and headdresses. Triangular-shaped, pierced eyes are characteristic of Nok sculptures, as is the use of coarse clay containing grains of mica, quartz, or granite.
