Description

Large original old Naga house post. Traditional tribal north India village peoples carved these amazing ladder like structures to support the corners and entries to their homes. The stunning patterns make an attractive art piece that has been salvaged from destruction from falling or abandoned large grass huts. The water buffalo is a common repeating symbol of strength seen at the top of these architectural posts, doors, and panels. Some of the cargo wood art show repeating head or skull designs as these tribal areas were known to be headhunters in early years.
