House Post

Gurage, Ethiopia

House Post. Gurage Culture, Ethiopia

Three phallic symbols have been carved into the top of this fine wooden house post to ensure fertility and protection within the household. The post was also used as a form of partition marker to separate areas inside a traditional dwelling. 

The surface of the house post exhibits a lovely deep, glossy patina as a result of extensive handling and touching over the years. 

Estimated Period: Late 19th / Early 20th Century
