Carved pole in ancestral shrine

This photograph was taken by Dr. Simon Ottenberg while conducting field research at Afikpo village-group, southeastern Nigeria, from September 1959 to December 1960.
Original title reads, "Carved poles at Kpogrikpo, inside the ancestral shrine of Sergeant Okpani's compound. Never obtained much information on it, regretfully. Such a pole was very unusual at Afikpo."
