The unique piece shown in the picture is the exact item you will receive.

Little is known about the Nok culture, which is defined largely on the basis of its stunning terracotta artwork. Aesthetically, the sculpture is both naturalistic and expressionistic, with very distinctive elongated forms, triangular eyes, pierced pupils and nostrils, and elaborate hairstyles. The function of this art is unclear, although the care with which they are executed has led some to claim that they represent nobility.
